The Government of Lao PDR is undertaking new initiatives to combat trafficking in collaboration with UNICEF in support of the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare in the following areas:

  • Support for trafficked victims. The Lao Women’s Union runs psycho-social counseling in Vientiane and plans to expand the service to almost every province.
  • Social work. UNICEF supports training for Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare staff notably on the Convention on the Rights of the Child and family tracing.
  • Child protection networks. Community networks exist in 75 villages to monitor children vulnerable to a range of hazards, including trafficking.
  • Youth prevention A package of communication materials is being produced employing Lao youth personalities to convey anti-trafficking, drugs and HIV AIDS prevention messages.

UNICEF Laos projects to combat child trafficking are supported by the Government of Italy, the German National Committee for UNICEF and the Government of Japan through the UN Human Security Trust Fund.
