"Female victims continue to be particularly affected by trafficking in persons. In 2018, for every 10 victims de- tected globally, about five were adult women and two were girls. About one third of the overall detected victims were children, both girls (19 per cent) and boys (15 per cent), while 20 per cent were adult men.
Traffickers target victims who are marginalized or in dif- ficult circumstances. Undocumented migrants and peo- ple who are in desperate need of employment are also vulnerable, particularly to trafficking for forced labour."
