  • Overview

    Many health care providers in the United States practice with the thought that human trafficking, also referred to as modern day slavery, does not exist here in the United States. Rather, they believe that it is a problem relevant only to far off distant countries. The truth is that this terrible crime is occurring right here in the United States, just as it is in faraway places. In the United States, roughly 88% of victims have had an interaction with a healthcare provider during their captivity. This puts health care professionals in a unique position to interact with victims in a way that, if appropriately identified, can result in liberation for the victim. Identifying persons believed to be a victim of human trafficking requires health care providers to not only recognize the many types of trafficking that can occur, but also be able to recognize the indicators that unlawful human trafficking may be taking place.
