Description: 

Caring for Trafficked Persons brings together the collective experience of a broad range of experts from international organizations, universities and civil society in addressing the consequences of human trafficking. Developed with the support of the United Nations Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking, and led by IOM and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, the handbook gives practical, non-clinical advice to help a concerned health provider understand the phenomenon of human trafficking, recognize some of the associated health problems and consider safe and appropriate approaches to providing healthcare for trafficked persons. This essential tool is available in additional languages.

The Armenian version of the “Caring for Trafficked Persons: Guidance for Health Providers” was published within the framework of UNDP’s “Anti-Trafficking Programme: Capacity Developing Support and Victims Assistance” Phase II”, where IOM was a partner.
