Title: Federal Strategic Action Plan on Services for Victims of Human Trafficking: Enhancing the Health Care System's Response to Human Trafficking
OMB No.: New Collection
In 2013, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services co-chaired an inter-agency process with the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security to create the first Federal Strategic Action Plan on Services for Victims of Human Trafficking in the United States. The Plan addresses the needs for the implementation of coordinated, effective, culturally appropriate and trauma informed care for victims of human trafficking. The purpose of this initiative is to develop a pilot training project that will strengthen the health systems' response to human trafficking in four key ways
1. Increase knowledge about human trafficking among health care providers;
2. Build the capacity of health care providers to deliver culturally appropriate and trauma-informed care to victims of human trafficking;
3. Increase the identification of victims of human trafficking; and
4. Increase services to survivors of human trafficking.
The evaluation will measure immediate outcomes, e.g., from pre-intervention to post-intervention, as well as intermediate outcomes at a 3 month post intervention.
The target audience for training and evaluation will be 200 health care providers from hospitals, clinics, and private health practices. The health care providers will be from federal, state/territorial, and local health departments, the Veterans' Administration, professional associations, and tribal institutions.
