Title:
Human Trafficking and the Health Care Provider
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) This presentation will address the global and domestic human trafficking. An estimated 20,000 people are trafficked within the U.S. each year, while millions may be trafficked internationally. Trafficking victims are forced, defrauded and coerced into labor and sexual service for profit of others. Traffickers use individual vulnerabilities and immigration status, language ability and poor understanding of U.S. laws to identify future victims. Health care professionals need contemporary and updated information and resources about health risks, screening methods, and identification of trafficked person. Common medical problems will be reviewed and health care needs in different phases of trafficking. Legal and health care intersections will be explored. Implementation of a response protocol to assist those current victims will be introduced. Real case examples from trafficking survivors will be presented and discussed. Participants will learn how to reach out, look beneath the surface, provide assistance, and access resources to help victims, and gain a better understanding of the health challenges faced by victims of human trafficking.
