Information for the 2020 Trafficking in Persons Report


This report was submitted to the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons of the U.S. Department of State by Free Society Project/Cuba Archive, Global Liberty Alliance, and the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation.

This submission focuses on a form of trafficking: the forced/compelled labor of Cuban temporary workers, particularly of its “internationalist medical missions,” and addresses the period from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020 in a historical context. 

The Cuban government reports that around 75% of its exported workforce is composed of health workers. Other forms of state forced/compelled labor and sex trafficking, including of minors, believed to be occurring in Cuba are not addressed by this report.
