KHA Town Hall: Human Trafficking in America

April 30 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Every year thousands of people are sexually exploited in the United States. According to the Kentucky Government website “In 2022 alone, Kentucky received 344 reports of human trafficking involving 399 child victims. This is a 67% increase in reports and 71% increase in victims compared to 2020.” Allied health professionals often encounter these victims and proper training increases the likelihood they can identify and respond properly to the situation. This presentation will deepen your knowledge on risk factors, vulnerabilities, and health concerns that affect trafficking victims as well as the tactics of the traffickers that prey on these individuals. Understanding the mindset of the victim and trafficker better equips healthcare professionals to develop appropriate response protocols for the safest outcome.
