INTERPOL aims to end the abuse and exploitation of human beings for =
financial gain. Women from developing countries and young children all =
over the world are especially vulnerable to trafficking, smuggling or =
sexual exploitation.

Trafficking in women for sexual exploitation is a multi-billion-dollar =
business which involves citizens of most countries and helps sustain =
organized crime. A violation of human rights, it destroys the lives of =
its victims.

Human trafficking is distinct from people smuggling in that it involves =
the exploitation of the migrant, often for purposes of forced labour and =
prostitution.

People smuggling implies the procurement, for financial or material =
gain, of the illegal entry into a state of which that person is neither =
a citizen nor a permanent resident. Criminal networks which smuggle and =
traffic in human beings for financial gain increasingly control the flow =
of migrants across borders.

Child sexual exploitation on the Internet ranges from posed photos to =
visual recordings of brutal sexual crimes. One of INTERPOL's main tools =
for helping police fight this type of crime is the INTERPOL Child Abuse =
Image Database (ICAID).

Created in 2001, it contains hundreds of thousands of images of child =
sexual abuse submitted by member countries, thereby facilitating the =
sharing of images and information to assist law enforcement agencies =
with the identification of new victims.
