The United States is combating trafficking in persons (TIP) in a number of ways: including diplomatic efforts, research, and programs aimed at the prevention of TIP, the protection of victims, and the prosecution of human traffickers. The State Department's annual Trafficking in Persons Report is intended to raise awareness and spur foreign governments to take action to counter all forms of TIP. The report has increasingly focused the efforts of a growing community of nations to share information and to partner in new and important ways.
