Nepal is considered a source, transit, and destination country for human trafficking. Trafficking in Nepal is diverse and is cross-border, international, and internal. According to the report published by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), about 35,000 people were victims of human trafficking in the year 2018. They were trafficked for various purposes: sexual exploitation, removal of organs, forced labor, etc. Nepal has made significant efforts to control human trafficking by ratification of international conventions—such as United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and Palermo Protocol—and enacted the Human Trafficking and Transportation (Control) Act (HTTCA) in 2007.
