Caring for Trafficked Persons: Guidance for Health Providers

You are here

For many trafficked persons, the physical and psychological aftermath of a trafficking experience can be severe and enduring. Health providers may come into contact with victims of trafficking at different stages of the trafficking process and at different stages of their recovery. For health practitioners, diagnosing and treating trafficked persons can be exceptionally challenging.



Caring for Trafficked Persons: Guidance for Health Providers (AZ) and Caring for Trafficked Persons Facilitator’s Guide (AZ) were translated from English into Azerbaijani in the framework of the project ‘Enhancing Cooperation Measures to Effectively Combat Trafficking in Persons through Capacity Building and Technical Assistance in Azerbaijan – Phase V’ implemented by IOM with the financial support of U.S. Department of State (INL). The publications are curriculum and handbook respectively and are comprehensive documents developed with the aim to address the needs of healthcare professionals on providing victim-centered, informed and sensitive health care to trafficked persons.
