The most commonly used understanding of this condition is that human trafficking is the trade in humans, usually for forced labor, sexual slavery or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others. Also, it can encompass providing a spouse in the context of forced marriage, or the extraction of organs or tissues, including for surrogacy and ova removal. The issue of human trafficking can occur within one country or trans-nationally. Human trafficking is mostly related to women and children and does not necessarily involve the movement of the person from one place to another. Human trafficking is thought to be one of the fastest-growing activities of trans-national criminal organizations.
