American Nurses Association (ANA)

“Nurses can and should engage in open discussion and public debate to seek resolution in situations where violations of human rights are evident. Human trafficking is an often hidden example of violating human rights. It occurs when vulnerable persons are exploited in sex industries or labor markets. Nurses are in a perfect position to intervene and advocate for these victims when they encounter them in clinics, emergency rooms or community health centers.”- Excerpt from “The Nurse’s Role in Ethics and Human Rights: Protecting and Promoting Individual Worth, Dignity, and Human Rights in Practice Settings,” June 14, 2010.
