application/pdfGuidance note on the Identification, Protection and ReferralThe Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) on the Identification, Protection and Referral of Victims of Trafficking (SOP) came into force with the approval of the Cabinet of Ministers in October 2014. This SOP was developed by the National Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force (NAHTTF) with the support of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) through a lengthy multistakeholder consultative process. Members of the Task Force identified a need for such a SOP to set in place specific steps and procedures to guide the identification, provision of assistance and protection to victims of human trafficking. Further, a need has now arisen to adopt special procedures to be followed when dealing with victims of child trafficking (VoCTs) which is not specifically stipulated in the existing SOPs. The following guidance note is aimed at addressing this gap in the SOPs to ensure that principles and guidelines on child protection is adhered to and specific steps are taken by all stakeholders with regard to child victims of trafficking. It is also expected to assist first responders at the local government and community level in the effective identification, provision of assistance and protection to victims of child trafficking. These respondents include police officers, divisional and district level Child Rights Promotion Officers, National Child Protection Authority Officers, Probation Officers, Labour Officers, Women's Development Officers and other relevant Development Officers. Further, officers and professionals working with children including police officers, labour officers, health workers and other relevant stakeholders could use the guidance note to effectively deal with child trafficking and follow standards in dealing with victims. 22/06/202112MB
