Human trafficking survivors require healthcare that is trauma-informed and culturally sensitive to their particular needs. Coordination is needed between health providers and statutory and voluntary organizations. Healthcare providers will be educated on legal definitions, examples of sex trafficking, the top 3 ways victims are recruited into sex trafficking, behavioral characteristics of victims before and after, and physical and psychological methods of grooming victims.
