JUBA JANUARY 20: Each year, the United States dedicates the month of January to raising awareness about human trafficking. During this month, the U.S. Government reaffirms the importance of commitment throughout the year to end human trafficking, which constitutes one of the worst categories of human rights violations. They also honor the achievements of those who are dedicated to raising awareness about this important issue and who are working to end human trafficking.

Human traffickers often take advantage of instability caused by conflict to exploit others. In South Sudan, US Government are gravely concerned about reports of women and children being abducted, including within the context of subnational violence.

The Government are equally concerned by continued reports of the recruitment and use of child soldiers. They renew their call for South Sudan’s leaders to act with urgency to end subnational violence and to hold accountable those responsible for abductions and for all other forms of human rights violations, including child soldier recruitment.

Human trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of forced labour, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others. This may encompass providing a spouse in the context of forced marriage. Or the extraction of organs or tissues, including for surrogacy and ova removal.
