This article reviews prevention strategies initiated and implemented by NGOs across the globe to address female sex trafficking. It sets out the conceptual bases for anti-trafficking measures in general, and prevention measures in particular, before presenting a representative cross-section of programmes and approaches that are currently underway. The authors identify some of the gaps apparent in these responses, and offer recommendations to improve the implementation of prevention strategies. The article concludes that anti-trafficking prevention measures must be skilfully integrated into current community-development practices, and that for this reason local and global development planners must become more aware of this issue and the strategic actions necessary to address it.
