Human trafficking is a business just like any other business where there is a seller and a buyer. This includespornography, stripping, military prostitution and sex tourism. The three main elements of human trafficking include; the process of human trafficking which includes; recruiting, harboring, moving or obtaining or maintaining a person.The second element of human trafficking is the means which involvestying the girl’s legs and hands, nowadays it can even involve talking to people because they love money they end up falling into the trap. The third element is the end; what exactly is the end result or desire that they get out of the trafficking? Victimization starts early for the girl basically we are using the girl because the highest percentage of human trafficking is concentrated on the girl. Most runaways are escaping their homes maybe to escape abuse or they are not happy with their parents and all that. They are staying with friends because they are vulnerable and have no asset that they can provide for themselves. At 18 years prostitution is not illegal, Vulnerability is what makes the victims be the greatest target.

The risk factors for sexual exploitation; there are social factors which include academic failures, academic dropout, community denial, they have a tenancy to be antisocial, seclusion by the society and so on.  Individual factors for sexual exploitation victims; a good percentage of these girls have a very bad self-imaged. They don’t see themselves as having self-worth of themselves. They don’t have a sense of belongingness; they become dysfunctional in the family. The difference between neglect and human trafficking is that in neglect the incidence can be witnessed and reported by somebody whereas human trafficking is discovered. The benefit of having the multidisciplinary response is that the victim survival in success is in the investigation is that the victim trauma is addressed. This is the most important method of addressing the needs of the victim in the investigation. The advocacy ensures that the victims have access to resources, and services including emergency shelter, medicalcare, mental health services and advocacy. The challenge with the victim is that multiple interviews have to be contacted for the victim to open up. The victims tend to defend their abusers. The challenge the multidisciplinary team is facing is lack of resources to provide for the victims.It’s not easy to identify victims due to lack of evidence.
