Healthcare Needs of Trafficking Victims

An FHO reader asked if I would do a review of the literature on the healthcare needs of trafficking victims and the answer is no, because it’s already out there. Allow me to point your attention to the library over at HEAL Trafficking. No need to reinvent that wheel–they’ve got you covered, plus they make it super easy to stay current with their RSS feeds. Aside from the peer-reviewed literature, they also have a variety of reports and assorted media, making it a pretty decent place to start your lit reviews. See also: their toolkit for developing a protocol for responding to victims of human trafficking in healthcare settings.
