The report focuses on the different stages where health providers may come into contact with victims of human trafficking. As health care providers often play an important role in assisting and treating individuals who have suffered repeated abuse, the handbook provides practical and non-clinical advice to help them understand the phenomenon of trafficking. It recognizes some of the associated health problems and considers safe and appropriate approaches to providing healthcare for trafficked persons.

Caring for Trafficked Persons brings together the collective experience of a broad range of experts from international organisations, universities and civil society in addressing the consequences of human trafficking.
