Human Trafficking: Training for Healthcare Providers

Human Trafficking Awareness


Healthcare and allied health professionals are invited to participate in a training on how to recognize and address human trafficking. Sponsored by JPOW, the American Medical Women's Association (AMWA), and the Alameda-Contra Costa Medical Association (ACCMA), this is an evidence-based program developed by Massachusetts General Hospital that targets a wide healthcare audience—physicians, residents, nurses, social workers, mental healthcare providers, administrators, and other health professionals whose professional or personal lives may interface with victims of human trafficking.

The aim of the training is to heighten awareness of human trafficking, thus improving victim identification efforts and creating an environment of safe and appropriate care. Additionally, the training will help healthcare workers understand how they can play a role in the prevention of human trafficking in their communities.
