Priority target groups

Although the immediate elimination of all child labour is beyond the reach of many countries, experience shows that significant progress can be achieved provided that there is the will, both at the political level and in society itself, to combat it with determination. Clear priorities must be set for national action. What should these priorities be? First and foremost, action needs to be taken against the worst forms of child labour, that is, those winch constitute an infringement of human rights, such as forced labour, debt bondage and prostitution, and those which are especially prejudicial to children's safety or health. National action should be geared to the immediate prevention of such abuses and the withdrawal of children from such work.
