The US State Department released its annual report on human trafficking. In this report, countries are divided into three groups: the first group of countries that have adopted the problem of human trafficking and try to eliminate it. The second group is the countries that recognize this problem but do not try for it, and the third is the countries that have not recognized the problem at all and do not try to do it.
At the beginning of this report in the Iranian section, "the Iranian government has not been able to reach the minimum standards for the elimination of human trafficking, and has not done an effective job in this regard, so it falls into the third group."
However, it has been stated that, despite the lack of effective efforts by the Iranian government to combat human trafficking, the government has taken steps to tackle this issue. Including the establishment of centers to help victims of trafficking in human beings.
Aside from this, the Iranian government has agreed to work with some countries in the region to combat human trafficking, although during the previous reporting period, the Iranian government did not provide any information on its efforts to combat human trafficking.
Iran is the destination and source of trafficking and forced labor
According to reports to international centers, Iran has been one of the transit centers and one of the source countries for the past five years, as well as trafficking in minors, women and children, as well as forced labor.
Integrated and organized human trafficking groups send women, boys and girls to Afghanistan, Kurdistan, Iraq, Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates and Europe for forced sex services.
Some Iranian women who go to these countries to help their families are forced to provide sexual services and forced labor.
Iranian girls aged 13 to 17 are targets of human trafficking gangs and are being sacked for sale outside of Iran. Younger girls are forced to do homework for a trafficker to recognize that they have grown enough to provide sexual services.
In 2016, a report was made that the number of Iranian women who have been taken to Dubai to prosecute has increased significantly. Some of these women are victims of human trafficking. The city of Shiraz is the source of the journey of these women and girls, some of which are taken from Azerbaijan to Shiraz and transported to Dubai from there.
Between 2009 and 2015, the transfer of girls from inside Iran to one of the Gulf states to provide forced sex services has also increased.
Some officials in the Iraqi Kurdistan Government, clients of prostitutes with Iranian women
According to the report, Iranian girls are forced to work in Kurdish prostitutes of Iraq, especially Sulaimaniyah. Some of these girls are taken to Sulaimaniyah by Iranian gangs of smuggling.
In 2015, local Kurdish media reported that a number of members of the Kurdish government are clients of these prostitutes.
In the cities of Tehran, Tabriz and Astara, the number of teenage girls used to provide sexual services has increased.
In this report, temporary marriage or confession is also a form of prostitution, while this is legal in Iran. The prevalence of these marriages, which lasts from an hour to a week, has also been further enhanced by this report.
The children of the "Sex tourism" in the Philippines
Children from sex tourists
Many women and children in the city of Oolongapo Philippines are self-proclaimed in a struggle for poverty and inferiority. Of course, many women prostitutes come to the city from other areas of the Philippines to work in the nightclubs. Access to contraception is very difficult in Ulunagapo, and therefore, thousands of children are born with tourists each year for their intercourse.

Abuse of Afghan boys in Iran
Street children are also at risk of being trapped in traffickers. Criminal gangs of child soldiers force Iranian children, and especially Afghan refugee children, into forced labor and begging in the streets of major cities, mostly in Tehran. Some of these children have no more than three years of age, and they are subject to physical, psychological and sexual abuse, and they are given drugs.
Afghan boys in Iran are being harassed by their Iranian employers and are being harassed by government and security officials.
Human trafficking gangs trafficked Afghan children to forced labor to Iran, and they also take them from Iran to Europe, and they are forced to work to pay for travel to Europe in exchange for very tiny payments at restaurants.
Afghan refugees forced into Syria
In 2016, an international organization and a media reported that the Iranian government and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps sent Iranian refugees or migrants to Syria to war and threatened to return to Afghanistan if they did not go to Syria.
In 2015 and 2016, the Iranian government launched a militia group called "Ahl-e Hagh", a branch of the "Saleh" group. This group is comprised of training camps for high schools and universities in southern Iraq, some of whose participants are under the age of 18.
According to Iraqi sources, the Iranian government also has one
