Human Trafficking in Bangladesh

The Bangladesh Government reported that there were 1,311 women and children who were officially identified as victims of human trafficking in Bangladesh between 2004 to 2010.

The figure is broken down by 730 women and 581 children.

NGO representatives dispute the number, stating that there were much more human trafficking victims than officially reported.
