Secretary General to the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security Minister Anusorn Iamsa-ard has presented a human trafficking prevention policy to the government and private sectors in the South to improve the standards of living for local residents.

During the meeting on human trafficking prevention in Nakorn Srithammarat, Mr. Anusorn said that the government has made human trafficking a national concern, as the country is still on a human trafficking watch list.

He has coordinated with both the public and private sectors in dealing with such a problem. Measures have been developed to help victims of human trafficking and prevent anyone from becoming one, Mr. Anusorn said.

The victims will be eligible to enter a welfare scheme as a way of restoring their well-being and mental health. Awareness of such a crime will also be promoted among residents. Other relevant issues to be tackled by the Ministry’s mission include the prevention of teen pregnancy, child labor, as well as abuse of women, children, the elderly and people with disabilities.
