Global Health Council Policy Series
Trafficking of Children & Adolescents as a Public Health Issue
Sex trafficking of children and adolescents is a worldwide problem with enormous health consequences including HIV and STDs, reproductive health issues, gastro-intestinal diseases and bodily injuries. These health challenges affect both individuals and the wider community, yet there is little involvement of the public health community either in terms of data collection or service delivery. Please join the expert panel to discuss why this is the case and what can be done to change it.
