Stopping Sex Trafficking: The Role for Health and Social Services

  • Starts: 5:30 pm on Tuesday, February 25, 2020
  • Ends: 7:00 pm on Tuesday, February 25, 2020
80% of human trafficking survivors report being seen in some form of health care, while only 6% of health care providers report treating a victim of human trafficking. Health care and social service providers play a crucial role in disrupting the cycle of trafficking. This cycle starts at an early age with children in the child welfare system being disproportionately affected by sex trafficking. It is important for these agencies and social services to collaborate in order to identify trafficked persons and support survivors.
