Labor Trafficking: Medical Clinic

The following dramatized scenario depicts indicators of human trafficking, a crime committed when a trafficker uses force, fraud,or coercion to compel another person to work for little or no wages or to commit acts of commercial sex. Human trafficking victims are often invisible because we do not recognize indicators of human trafficking. The following scenario shows actions and behaviors that might occur in a health care setting. Pay attention, because identifying signs of human trafficking and reporting a tip may save a life.
