Although Uganda and Kenya do not fully comply with international standards, they are better placed than other EAC members — and the report says they have made significant efforts to comply with the standards.
Rwanda and Tanzania are a source and, to a lesser extent, transit and destination countries for trafficking women and children.
The report places Burundi and South Sudan in the second last tier, with governments that do not fully meet the minimum standards and are not making significant efforts to do so.
No African country is placed in Tier 1, where countries meet the minimum standards.
