The production of child sexual exploitation material (CSEM) is an issue that plagues communities worldwide. Yet, the Philippines has been identified as a global epicenter for financially motivated CSEM production, especially via livestreaming. Anecdotal evidence suggests that incidences of this form of trafficking and exploitation in the Philippines are high. In March 2021, International Justice Mission (IJM) launched the Scale of Harm project to measure the prevalence of trafficking of children to produce CSEM in the Philippines.
