Partnerships

    Through the Look Beneath the Surface Campaign, OTIP works with grantees and stakeholders to raise awareness of human trafficking and the factors that make certain populations more at risk.

  • Public-Private Partnerships

    OTIP collaborates with private organizations to raise awareness, identify research needs, and gather recommendations to improve government programs.

  • HHS Task Force to Prevent and End Human Trafficking

    OTIP supports the HHS Task Force to Prevent and End Human Trafficking to strengthen cross-departmental initiatives to support survivors and prevent modern slavery.

  • Federal Interagency Task Force

    The Office of Trafficking in Persons (OTIP) represents the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in federal partnerships, most notably on the Senior Policy Operating Group of the President’s Interagency Task Force  to Monitor and Combat Trafficking (PITF).

  • National Advisory Committee on the Sex Trafficking of Children and Youth in the U.S.

    OTIP, in consultation with the Department of Justice and the National Governors Association, support the work of the National Advisory Committee on the Sex Trafficking of Children and Youth in the U.S. This committee advises the Attorney General and the HHS Secretary on the nation’s response to trafficking.
