The National Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance Center is hosting a webinar on September 14th at 2pm ET: Introduction to a Public Health Framework for Human Trafficking. From the announcement:
This webinar will introduce you to a public health framework for human trafficking, which allows communities to identify and respond to the complex needs of all individuals who have been trafficked. A public health approach also examines the root causes that make individuals, families, and communities vulnerable to trafficking. In this webinar, we apply the “upstream-downstream” metaphor to a public health approach, and examine the success of looking upstream in building a public health response to other social issues such as domestic violence or anti-smoking efforts.
