Course Summary
Human trafficking is considered a form of modern slavery and it is global in its reach and impact. It is often associated with organized crime but human trafficking can be more localized and include perpetrators who are family, friends, neighbors or employers. Human trafficking more often involves the sexual exploitation of persons and forced labor but other forms of trafficking in persons are also perpetrated. Human trafficking adversely affects a victim’s mental and physical stability, security and well-being. It adversely affects entire communities, commerce, countries and geographical regions. Healthcare professionals are uniquely situated to identify victims of human trafficking through patient contact. Healthcare professionals need to know when and how to report human trafficking and the resources that are available to support victims who have been trafficked.
