- IOM Data Overview
The data provided to the CTDC by IOM are from its central data warehouse, which is the world’s largest data repository of human trafficking case data. IOM collects and manages information about victims of trafficking through its Migrant Management Operational System Application (MiMOSA) Counter Trafficking Module (CTM). The module allows for the reconstruction of the trafficking process of each victim and monitors the IOM direct assistance, movement and reintegration process in central systems, based on screening and assistance questionnaires after the victim has been referred to IOM. Victims of trafficking are registered in MiMOSA upon their referral to, or identification by, an IOM Country Office.
IOM has been working to counter trafficking in persons since 1994 and, by the end of 2016, had assisted over 90,000 trafficked persons. IOM’s counter-trafficking programmes provides a unique source of data on trafficking that is international in scope, through the collection of information obtained directly from victims of trafficking who have been assisted by IOM.
