Project Title: USAID Asia Counter Trafficking in Persons (CTIP)
Complex problems require transcendent solutions, ones that span borders and sectors. Human trafficking is such a problem, and the USAID Asia Counter Trafficking in Persons program (USAID Asia CTIP) is such a solution. A seven-year (2016-2023) program, USAID Asia CTIP is a regional activity that focuses on transnational and regional challenges to combat human trafficking. The program aims to reduce the trafficking of persons in Asia through a coordinated and consolidated action by governments, civil society and business that will foster cross-border cooperation, develop opportunities for private-sector leadership and improve the quality of data associated with human trafficking.
