In June 2022, eight IOM consultants working on the Slovak-Ukrainian border learnt about human trafficking and its mechanism to be able to deliver proper information and preventive steps.

IOM frontline workers understand:
- what are the most common myths about human trafficking,
- how to recognize risky situations that occur at borders,
- how to support safe travel of people coming from Ukraine,
- what to do and where to turn if they meet a victim of human trafficking.
Furthermore, they received basics on how to conduct educational and preventive activities in the area of combating human trafficking. Follow-up trainings will empower them to deliver educational activities on human trafficking for different audiences in the future.
