We hope that ANNAObserva can be a meeting place of a community interested in promoting the comprehensive protection of children and adolescents against sexual exploitation, smuggling and trafficking, with a human rights approach.

Inter-American Cooperation Programme for the Prevention and Eradication of Sexual Exploitation, Smuggling of and Trafficking in Children.

ANNAObserva is the website for the Inter-American Programme for the Prevention and Eradication of Child Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Illegal Trafficking.

The ANNAObserva Inter-American Programme was established by the Directing Council of the IIN in 2007 (CD/RES.10) and ratified by the General Assembly of the OAS the following year (AG/RES. 2432).

By Resolution (CD/RES 04 (87-R/12)) it was renamed as it is known today.

The Inter-American Program is organized into 3 working areas:

• Compilation, systematization and dissemination of significant information about sexual exploitation, trafficking of girls, boys and adolescents, with special emphasis on what is produced in the region.

• Production of knowledge and instruments to address sexual exploitation, trafficking of girls, boys and adolescents.

• Technical assistance and training of human resources.
