Human trafficking is a public health emergency affecting an estimated 12 to 30 million people globally. Given that 85% of trafficked victims have contact with health care providers in any year, nurses are critical to: the identification of trafficked persons; effective promotion of their physical, mental, and cognitive health; development and implementation of practice guidelines; implementation of research to inform bestpractices globally; and championing public policy initiatives at local, state, and national levels.
