On November 4, 2010, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon launched the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking in Persons to provide humanitarian, legal and financial aid to victims of human trafficking with the aim of increasing the number of those rescued and supported, and broadening the extent of assistance they receive.

The Fund was established in accordance with resolution A/RES/64/293 Article 38 of the General Assembly on 12 August 2010 - United Nations Global Plan of Action to Combat Trafficking in Persons.

To ensure efficient, transparent, and accountable Fund administration and to support uniform and consolidated reporting, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is designated as the Fund Manager for the Fund.
