About this event
The pandemic and subsequent quarantine may be leading to an escalation of human trafficking, according to an analysis of data from the U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline. 88% of trafficking victims seek medical care during their victimization.
This webinar will provide an overview of human trafficking in the United States and how healthcare workers can identify human trafficking. The webinar will also provide resources and training information to healthcare workers to help them respond to potential victims of human trafficking. The importance of a victim-centered and trauma-informed approach when caring for a victim of any type will be discussed.
This webinar coincides with January being National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.
About 25 million people worldwide are estimated to be victims of trafficking – with traffickers exploiting an estimated $150 billion-a-year in proceeds – according to the International Labor Organization.
If you or someone you know is a victim of human trafficking, call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888 or text 233733.
