2018 Policy & Issues Forum

Building Capacity and Leadership to Prevent Human Trafficking and Enable Patient Healing - NCA FEATURED

Mar 16, 2018 1:30pm ‐ Mar 16, 2018 3:00pm


A study of both labor and sex trafficking survivors showed that just over two thirds had encountered a health care professional while being trafficked, yet had not been identified. As care providers to vulnerable populations, health centers have enormous opportunity and responsibility to develop policies, protocols, procedures, and practices to prevent, intervene, and treat the harms of human trafficking. This session will highlight national, regional, and state association efforts to build capacity, among their member health centers, to respond to human trafficking.
