Educational Tools


This page of instructional resources can be used to improve the quality of healthcare that victims of human trafficking receive upon presentation to emergency departments. Emergency care practitioners are one of the few groups of people on the frontline, able to facilitate the escape of trafficked persons. Armed with the knowledge of how victims present and the proper treatment available for them, providers can save lives. Appropriately implemented, such education should increase the number of victims identified and create safe opportunities for trafficked persons to leave unsafe and unjust living conditions.

Caring for Trafficked Persons: Guidance for Health ProvidersCaring for Trafficked Persons brings together the collective experience of a broad range of experts from international organizations, universities and civil society in addressing the consequences of human trafficking.
