Wednesday, August 11, 2004 11:40 AM

The State Committee on Women’s Issues in Azerbaijan plans to launch several projects designed to combat trafficking in persons. According to the Trend news agency (11.08.2004), the main project of the Committee will be the creation of a website which will enable victims of trafficking to contact the State Committee directly.      


The State Committee believes that victims of trafficking who are not able publicly to seek assistance from governmental agencies might find it easier to seek assistance and learn about their problems through the website.


Together with the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the State Committee also plans to implement a project on trafficking prevention.  This project will begin following the visit of the OSCE Representative on Gender Issues to Azerbaijan.
