PREFATORY STATEMENT Republic Act No. 9208 declares that the State shall give highest priority to the enactment of measures and development of programs that will promotehuman dignity, protect the people from violence and exploitation, eliminatetrafficking in persons, and mitigate pressures for involuntar    migration and servitude of persons to ensure their recover    , rehabilitation, and reintegration. Republic Act No. 9262, on the other hand, underscores the commitment of the State on safeguarding the dignity of women and children while guaranteeing full respect of their human rights and to protect them from violence and threats to their personal safety and security.
