Human Trafficking for Health Care Providers

Health care practitioners are in a unique position to intervene in human trafficking, both labor and sex trafficking; however, they are often not aware their patient is a victim. Victims may be people of any age, gender, race/ethnicity, nationality, immigration status, or sexual orientation. Victims and survivors are often patients in dental offices, emergency rooms, and clinics. Health care providers have an opportunity to be a voice for this population that has no voice. Your intervention could save a life.
