Estonia is a source, transit and destination country for women and girls trafficked for sexual purposes; Estonian victims are trafficked within the country’s borders and in other European countries.

In 2014, 147 cases of rape were reported in Estonia, of which 92 concerned child victims.

The Estonian Union for Child Welfare provides a free service, Vihejliin, which allows Internet users to report child sexual abuse material online. Reports to Vihejliin can be made anonymously. In 2015, Estonian authorities registered 63 cases of children influenced to take part in the production of child sexual abuse materials, most of the cases featured children sending naked images of themselves.
