Nurse accused of child trafficking

Free children of sexual exploitation

The suspended death sentence handed down to Zhang Shuxia, former deputy director of obstetrics at Fuping County Maternal and Child Healthcare Hospital in Shaanxi province, for selling seven babies once again highlights the problem of child trafficking.

Child trafficking is a global problem. Up to 4 million women and girls are bought and sold into marriage, prostitution and slavery every year. According to UNICEF, more than 1 million children, most of them girls, are forced into the sex trade every year.
