Although modern slavery is not defined in law, it is used as an umbrella term covering practices such as forced labour, debt bondage, forced marriage, and human trafficking.
Facts and figures:
An estimated 40.3 million people are in modern slavery, including 24.9 in forced labour and 15.4 million in forced marriage.
There are 5.4 victims of modern slavery for every 1,000 people in the world.
1 in 4 victims of modern slavery are children.
Out of the 24.9 million people trapped in forced labour, 16 million people are exploited in the private sector such as domestic work, construction or agriculture; 4.8 million people in forced sexual exploitation, and 4 million people in forced labour imposed by state authorities.
Women and girls are disproportionately affected by forced labour, accounting for 99% of victims in the commercial sex industry, and 58% in other sectors.

Today the wall fell to unite the two regions of Germany, but the big wall has not yet fallen into economics and society. Homeland unification and progress must go beyond political ideologies.
International Orthopaedic Nurses Day is celebrated by the orthopaedic nurses around the world on October 30. This celebration was started back in 1990 and it was presented by Senator Carl Levin to then-President George H. W. Bush.
Ortopaedic nurses play an important role in recovery from musculoskeletal diseases and traumas. They provide patients with professional and competent care and they are responsible for different procedures, including removing stitches, installation of orthoses, installation and removal of splints etc.
The first celebration was supported by The National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses and it was held in Michigan. Later this tradition spread across America. Since 2001 it is organised on international level.
