The convergence of health care and human trafficking

Every day in Ohio and elsewhere, many victims of human trafficking come in contact with health-care professionals yet remain unidentified. This holds true even though victims present with a wide range of health issues, both physical and psychological. 
The Health Care Subcommittee of Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost’s Human Trafficking Commission identified a knowledge gap within health-care settings:  the ability to safely recognize, treat and provide intervention to victims of human trafficking.

Hoping to close that gap, the subcommittee worked with Mount Carmel Health System to develop the two videos below and this accompanying Facilitator’s Discussion Guide to help train health-care providers statewide on how to identify trafficking victims and respond appropriately.
