Countries around the world continue to strive in their fight against human trafficking whose efforts are reflected in the yearly Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report of the US Department of State. This year, the Philippines has once again sustained its top ranking due to its relentless efforts in the elimination of human trafficking. The first time the country met the US standards in fighting trafficking was in 2016. Tier 1 is the highest status a country could receive signifying compliance with the minimum standards of the US’ Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA).
