Human trafficking is an escalating crime across the world and is now considered as lucrative as drug smuggling and arms dealing. As a leading provider of content and technology solutions that is committed to the Rule of Law principle, LexisNexis is proud to introduce the Human Trafficking Awareness Index (HTA Index) in South Africa. This follows successful introductions of the Index in countries such as the United Kingdom.

The HTA Index uses the respected LexisNexis® database service to track and analyse the volume of news articles related to human trafficking. It is hoped that the service will provide a valuable tool for campaigners looking to raise awareness of human trafficking on an on-going basis.

The LexisNexis HTA Index™ data model highlights emerging trends and patterns of awareness within and across national borders. Activists working to combat human trafficking can use this information to highlight and raise awareness to inform their efforts and gain greater understanding of the news.

Not only do we want to raise awareness about this heinous crime around the globe, but we also aim to assist governments in finding solutions to improve the effectiveness of their legal systems by providing reliable, legal resources in printed and electronic formats.
