WARRIA, Ajwang'; NEL, Hanna  and  TRIEGAARDT, Jean. Identification and initial care process of child victims of transnational trafficking: A social work perspective. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2014, vol.50, n.4, pp.529-549. ISSN 2312-7198.

Child trafficking violates children's rights and undermines their protection. Under-identification of child victims of trafficking has been reported to be a challenge globally and in South Africa. This article illustrates the process a social worker could apply when identifying child victims of transnational trafficking. Findings of the qualitative research reveal that there is no single point of entry for a trafficked child and thus there can be several actors in the identification process; it was also found that initial care and protection are also essential. The role of social workers in the identification-assessment-care process is highlighted.
