The Human Sciences Research Council urges government and civil society to take serious action against human trafficking
The Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) has urged government and civil society organisations to take serious action against human trafficking in South Africa.

In its latest study released at a National Prosecuting Authority conference, the HSRC stated that, "Human trafficking in South Africa is a serious problem and warrants intervention on all fronts."

The report further argues that, "All documented cases in this last category are women trafficked for both sexual and labour exploitation." It also identified the albino community as vulnerable to human traffickers for the harvesting of body parts, due to the belief that a white skin has potent powers.
