Zimbabwe is a source, transit and destination country for the trafficking of children subjected to sexual exploitation; girls who live on the border with neighbouring countries, such as South Africa, Mozambique, and Zambia are sexually exploited in brothels catering to long-distance truck drivers on both sides of the borders.

A 2016 study conducted by the Zimbabwe National Council for the Welfare of Children concluded that 64.6% of women who work in the sex industry started to be sexually exploited below the age of 18.
