This study focuses on women and adolescent girls who have been trafficked within, to and from East and Southern Africa (ESA). It is the first study in ESA to focus specifically on the links between trafficking of women and sexual, reproductive and mental health (SRMH). With regard to health, special attention is paid to HIV since all countries in ESA are experiencing generalised HIV epidemics (with the exception of the Indian Ocean Island States).
