National campaign against human trafficking launched


The government has launched a national campaign against human trafficking. The campaign, entitled Human, like you, aims to increase the awareness of the general public on the international challenge of human trafficking.

The campaign, which was launched by Parliamentary Secretary Julia Farrugia, explains how human trafficking reduces humans as products, subjects them to abuse and take off any form of dignity.

Addressing the launch event, Parl.Sec. Farrugia said the campaign is the first step to strengthen the government policies against human trafficking. Farrugia said that the Maltese government sees human trafficking as a breach of human rights, and needs to be addressed at a global level.

The educational campaign will be targetting different audiences, and is aimed at generating awareness on how to identify human trafficking and what actions one can take.

As part of this campaign, a website was launched.
