The crime of human trafficking tends to be hidden and complex. Healthcare providers may be some of the only individuals that victims encounter outside of their "trafficking world." A 2014 study of survivors of commercial sex trafficking found that 87.8% had sought services of a healthcare provider while being trafficked but were not identified.** Recognizing possible signs and symptoms, interaction with the person in a trauma informed manner, and knowing whom to call for additional help in imperative for clinicians in all healthcare settings.



1. Define the complex crime of human trafficking.

2. Discuss actions to take as a healthcare provider in response to suspected victims of human trafficking.
