JAAPA CME Podcast: Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking

Globally, more than 40 million people are victims of human trafficking, exploited as a black-market commodity generating more than $150 billion annually. These people are forced to work in various industries, including domestic work and escort services. Though studies are limited, survivor interviews have indicated that most trafficked persons presented to a healthcare provider at some point during their captivity. This activity includes both a podcast and an interactive review article about how PAs can be prepared to handle the issue of human trafficking.
