Established in 1951, IOM is a Related Organization of the United Nations, and as the leading UN agency in the field of migration, works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and nongovernmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has been working with the Government, international and local partners to combat trafficking in persons in the United Republic of Tanzania since 2005, focusing on prevention, victims’ protection, assistance and identification.
Most cases of trafficking in persons identified in the United Republic of Tanzania are internal, involving mainly children, girls, boys and women. However, Tanzania also serves as a country of origin, transit and destination for international trafficking in persons. According to the Anti Trafficking in Persons Act of 2008, the Department of Social Welfare (DSW) within the Ministry of Health Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MOHCDGEC) has been assigned the role of “taking adequate measures for protection, rehabilitation and assistance to rescued victims”.

In the framework of UNDAPII Violence Against Women and Children protection Working Group, IOM in collaboration with other UN agencies supports Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), Local Government Authorities (LGAs), Law enforcement agencies and selected Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to have improved technical skills to prevent and respond to cases of abuse/violence/exploitation of children.
