Human Trafficking


It is essential for healthcare providers to be knowledgeable about human trafficking. Healthcare professionals are in a key position to help victims of human trafficking and stop this crime. Healthcare workers are often the first source of help that a victim of human trafficking encounters. Educating and advocating for victims can help save someone who might not otherwise have the chance to break free from the cycle of trafficking. This education activity defines human trafficking, identifies persons at risk and warning signs of being a victim, and shares standards for healthcare worker response if human trafficking is suspected.
