National Awareness Raising

The Human Rights Initiatives Unit (HRIU) has launched an awareness raising initiative to strengthen the consciousness of the public on what constitutes the crime of human trafficking, and to ensure that the public is knowledgeable of the indicators of trafficking.

This campaign aims to encourage the public not to remain passive in front of these realities, and to report suspicious criminal activity on the CRIME STOP number 119 to help ensure the protection of victims of human trafficking.​

The Campaign included a series of designs for Billboards and Bus Shelters installed around Malta & Gozo focusing on the National effort to PROTECT victims and PROSECUTE human trafficking and raising awareness among the public at large about the need to PREVENT & REPORT the crime of human trafficking.


The national stakeholders participating in this initiative are:

The Malta Police Force
The Foundation for Social Welfare Services
The Malta Council for Voluntary Sector
The Department for Industrial and Employment Relations
The Victim Support Agency
The Legal Aid Agency
The Malta Employers Association
The Public Broadcasting Services
