Addressing human trafficking through health systems – a scoping review by WHO, co-authored by HEAL

This report surveys current scholarly literature on health care and human trafficking to illuminate the critical role that health systems play in anti-trafficking activities. It provides an evidence base from which States and health systems can shape intersectoral policy and
their efforts to prevent and respond to trafficking. The health effects of trafficking and the health needs of trafficked people, particularly women, adolescents and children, are well documented and urgent, yet by 2015 there was still little in the way of evidence-informed research that indicated the health consequences of trafficking or the best practices for serving trafficked people.
