End Child Sex Tourism in Southeast Asia

As a popular tourist destination, Southeast Asia has also attracted sex tourists who prey on children. Poverty and lack of access of education among minority groups have made children vulnerable to exploitation. According to NGO statistics, 50-90% of the children rescued from brothels in parts of South East Asia are infected with HIV. Governments and NGOs, especially those in the Mekong Delta region, have made concerted efforts to combat child prostitution and cross-border trafficking. The public is urged to be vigilant about child prostitution practices.
