Human trafficking victims come into contact with health care professionals, law enforcement, airport officials, teachers, and counselors on a daily basis. Medical professionals, as well as other professionals are in a critical position to identify and effectively respond to trafficking victims. Identification and response is only valuable if professionals are trained!
Agencies such as the Department of Health and Human Services are partnering with health care professionals and training them on identification and response procedures. If you or anyone you know is interested in training Polaris Project has great resources and references.
