Evidence suggests that many adults and children subjected to sex or labor trafficking experience significant adverse health effects and seek medical care in a variety of healthcare settings. In one study, nearly 88% of sex trafficked girls and women reported having seen a medical provider during the period of their exploitation1. Healthcare professionals are in a unique position to offer victim services, but can only do so if they are equipped to recognize patients at risk for trafficking and respond appropriately. This program offers an overview of adult and child trafficking, including definitions, risk factors, possible indicators, and recommendations for responding to suspected exploitation. It describes the trauma-informed approach to patient care and strategies for offering services that target patient vulnerabilities and assist in victim recovery.
