The General Assembly, Deploring the fact that prostitution is a widespread practice which often leads to  human trafficking through various means, Further   deploring  that   it   is   estimated   that   nearly   2.5   million   people   from   127  different   countries   are   being   trafficked   around   the   world   every   year   and   12   million   people worldwide have already been victims, Congratulates the United Nations for the enforcement of the “Protocol to Prevent,  Suppress   and   Punish   Trafficking   in   Persons,   especially   Women   and   Children”   in  December 2003, Deeply concerned that although laws have been instituted by the United Nations  and despite continuous efforts by Non­Governmental Organisations such as UNICEF  and UNIFEM, most countries are still trying to comply by them, Fully alarmed that not only women are being trafficked but also men and children  of poor backgrounds are obliged to become modern slaves, Concerned by the serious lack of adequate facilities and manpower to accurately  regulate cross­border flow of people which leads to an ease for human traffickers to  commit human trafficking,

Commission: Human Rights Sponsors : Kazakhstan, Paraguay, Haiti, Spain, Mali, Romania, Niger 1.  Requests   international assistance to collectively raise awareness of the major  issue at hand by:


Holding summits to provide an international platform for governments on a  yearly basis;


Empowering vulnerable   groups   by   launching   national   and   international  sensitization campaigns;

2. Recommends  every stakeholder to set up a separate Ministry specially designed  for the protection and welfare of women and children;

3. Expresses its hope   that all members of the United Nations approve to permit  prostitution   as   a   means   to   provide   legal   rights   to   all   those   who   engage   in   these   activities;

4. Calls   upon   international   cooperation   to   supply   funds   for   the   setting   up   of  rehabilitation facilities especially in vulnerable areas;


Appeals  for international solidarity to endow with funding for:


the efficient   running   of   the   national   and   international   sensitization  campaigns;


the continuous operation of rehabilitation centres for the victims of human   trafficking ;

6. Invites  stakeholders to agree to the enforcement of new regulations in respect to  human trafficking and exploitation which will consist of:

Page 3 of 3 pages


Imposing heavier penalties to any perpetrator or partner in crime of human  trafficking;


Enlisting all those engaging in legal prostitution in a way to better spot  malpractices and be readily accountable of dispatching police force when  required;

7. Reminds  that due to the serious lack of expertise in the police force especially in  departments dealing with fake passports and any such document, all member states  are thereby requested to give their consent upon the enforcement of a law whereby  each government shall grant sufficient training to police forces and officials in charge; 8.  Stresses   on   the   fact   that   legalising   and   regulating   prostitution   alongside  reformatory law enforcement would ensure not only a decline in human trafficking but  also in the contraction of sexually­transmitted diseases.
