  • Preliminary Recommendations to Strengthen the Nation’s Response to the Sex Trafficking of Children and Youth in the United States

    Published: January 17, 2019
    The National Advisory Committee on the Sex Trafficking of Children and Youth in the United States (the Committee) envisions a comprehensive response to the sex trafficking of children and youth where federal, state, tribal, and local efforts effectively ensure victims are identified and cared for, perpetrators are held accountable, and conditions that foster trafficking are eradicated. This report provides a preliminary outline of recommendations for states to improve their efforts to combat the crime of child and youth sex trafficking. Regardless of a state’s current response level or model, every state can benefit from a periodic, objective assessment of their response.
  • HHS Health & Human Trafficking Symposium Panel Materials

    Published: January 14, 2019
    In 2008, the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) sponsored a national symposium focused on the health needs of human trafficking victims. This event brought together health care professionals, federal employees, and anti-trafficking advocates to discuss how best to identify victims in health care settings and ways that the health care system can provide improved and effective services to this population. Learn more from the Post-Symposium Brief. Ten years later, ASPE partnered with the ACF Office on Trafficking in Persons to convene a follow-up symposium to reflect on how far the health service response to human trafficking has evolved, identify emerging issues, and inform future anti-trafficking efforts across the fields of health care, behavioral health, public health, and social work. Leading practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and trafficking survivors gathered to discuss critical issues and gaps, share lessons learned, identify trauma-informed clinical practices based on the best available evidence, and inform current and future anti-trafficking efforts. Over 120 partners attended the symposium in person, and over 300 participants joined online. Access the agenda.
  • Webinar: A Public Health Approach to Human Trafficking

    Published: December 31, 2018
    One of the primary benefits of looking at human trafficking as a public health issue is the emphasis on prevention: that is, looking at the systemic issues that cause people to be vulnerable to human trafficking in the first place. Upstream determinants, such as domestic violence, substance use, poverty, and immigration status, may put some individuals at a higher risk for trafficking than others. A public health approach to trafficking moves upstream to identify preventive measures that, when combined with downstream interventions, can work to decrease the number of individuals who experience trafficking.
