Romania's Ministry of Administration and the Interior, the United Nations Development Program and the U.S. Agency for International Development have launched a program designed to promote cooperation among Southeastern European countries in the fight against human trafficking.  The program involves the distribution of a manual to law enforcement officials and prosecutors with the goal of improving efforts to protect trafficking victims who agree to provide information or testify in connection with the investigation and prosecution of trafficking offenses.  The manual has been included in law enforcement training curricula in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Serbia and Montenegro, Macedonia, Moldova, Romania, Slovenia, Turkey, the Ukraine and the U.N. Protectorate of Kosovo.
