HEAL Trafficking brings together physicians, advanced practice clinicians, nurses, dentists, psychologists, counselors, public health workers, health educators, researchers, social workers, attorneys, administrators, and other professionals who work with and advocate for survivors of human trafficking. Our topical online forums and initiatives synergize, centralize, and improve the quality of existing anti-trafficking work. As an online network, we encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and we welcome new collaborators as our global community continues to grow.
The HEAL Advocacy Initiative advances the health care response to trafficking by working to improve public policies and support anti-trafficking efforts at the local, regional, national, and international levels.
The HEAL Direct Services Initiative works to improve the clinical care for trafficked persons by providing opportunities for service providers to connect, access support, share information and promising practices, identify best practices, and expand the referral network.
The HEAL Education and Training Initiative focuses on educating health care providers about trafficking and making relevant, evidenced-based training resources more accessible for health professionals and systems.
