Course Summary

Human trafficking has become a growing social concern worldwide. Despite efforts to prevent it, human trafficking (human slavery) is an abuse that affects all age groups, genders, and ethnicities. Health professionals are increasingly required to be aware of the problem of human trafficking, to recognize it and to know how to intervene. Although the laws and law enforcement agencies combat human trafficking, health agencies are increasingly confronted with the demoralizing and crippling effects this abuse has on individuals, whole families and communities.
