Educational Tools

This page of instructional resources can be used to improve the quality of healthcare that trafficked persons receive in 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 trafficked persons present and the proper treatment available for them, practitioners can positively change lives. Appropriately implemented, such education can increase the number of safe opportunities for trafficked persons to leave unsafe and unjust living conditions.
