Launch of the UNODC Toolkit on the Investigation and Prosecution of Trafficking in Persons for Organ Removal 


New York, 25 October 2022

UNODC has developed a comprehensive and innovative toolkit on the investigation and prosecution of trafficking in persons for organ removal. The toolkit consists of a virtual reality crime scene investigation tool which allows law enforcement to better identify and collect evidence from medical surgeries and clinical settings, a prosecution manual and a victim interview protocol. Together with WHO, OHCHR and OSCE, UNODC promotes the importance of multi-agency investigations and prosecutions and of including NGOs in the response to this crime, so that victims are earlier identified, assisted and protected.
