The Australia-Asia Program to Combat Trafficking in Persons (AAPTIP) is implemented in Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
AAPTIP works to improve the criminal justice response TIP in ASEAN through four areas of focus:
- Law Enforcement
- Judges and Court Officials
- Regional Cooperation
AAPTIP is Australia’s third investment combatting TIP and builds on the success of the Asia Regional Cooperation to Prevent People Trafficking (ARCPPT: 2003-6) program and the Asia Regional Trafficking in Persons Project (ARTIP: 2006-12).
