Human trafficking & commercial sexual exploitation is a significant public health concern. Over 87% of survivors report having contact with medical providers while being trafficked. However, victims of trafficking report not disclosing their status to providers due to obstacles including fear, shame, language barriers, & limited time with staff. This interactive webinar covers signs of trafficking and sexual exploitation among adolescents and young adults, strategies for providers and staff to support trafficked and sexually exploited patients, and resources for providers and health center staff.
