Additional awareness campaigns are being planned for law enforcement, prosecutors and service providers.
The Filipino Initiative Against Trafficking in Persons (FIAT) plans two more road show campaigns intended to further increase awareness and provide much needed training for law enforcement personnel, prosecutors and service providers in a bid to further boost anti-trafficking convictions in areas where human trafficking incidents have been reported. The Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT), a government-led body mandated to oversee the implementation of the anti-trafficking law, and three major civil society-led networks: the Multi-Sectoral Network Against Trafficking (MSNAT); the Coalition Against Trafficking of Women in Asia and the Pacific (CATW-AP) and the Philippines Against Child Trafficking (PACT), agreed to work together, in partnership with local government units and other actors, to wage a campaign against trafficking in key areas in the Philippines identified as trafficking "hotspots". The Filipino Initiative Against Trafficking road show campaign is supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
