The IOM Handbook on Direct Assistance for Victims of Human Trafficking

The health chapter provides comprehensive instructions and advice on health and human rights issues, e.g., conceptual frameworks, ethical and safety principles, issues affecting care, special health considerations, medico-legal health aspects, clinical procedures and management, health planning and staff health issues. The key theme of the chapter is the development of minimum standards of care and the provision of specialized health services in accordance with the needs of the trafficking victim. The chapter focuses on service provision not only against the background of human rights, but also the public health interests of the countries of origin, of transit and of destination.
