Healthcare professionals play a critical role in addressing human trafficking in our community. The DATA Healthcare Subcommittee and the Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking collaboratively created this resource to support healthcare organizations in their response to human trafficking.
Human Trafficking in a Healthcare Setting: Protocol Suggestions for Healthcare Providers serves as a starting point for healthcare professionals to create their own organizational protocol on how to address human trafficking within their facility’s mission, guidelines, policies, values, and culture. Ultimately, it has the potential to help professionals working in this sector identify survivors of human trafficking and safely offer them care, resources, referrals, and other means of protection.
