Posted By: • September 23rd, 2015

Human trafficking is a harmful and sometimes deadly practice whereby individuals are enticed by jobs and hopes for a better future into a cycle of migration and exploitation. Trafficking of persons has been called:

  • a criminal act
  • a human rights violation
  • a form of exploitation
  • an act of violence.

For health care providers, trafficking in persons is best understood as a very serious health risk, because trafficking, like other forms of violence, is associated with physical and psychological harm.
