Human trafficking is a global and national epidemic and the most vulnerable victims are our nation's children. The average age of entry into human trafficking is only 14, and all U.S. children are at risk. Because of the violent nature of this crime, every day child victims must see healthcare providers for treatment of their injuries. A shocking estimated 87 percent of victims have visited a nurse, physician or other provider without being identified. Help us raise the money we need to eliminate child trafficking through early identification and awareness.
The Alliance for Children in Trafficking, a national awareness and education campaign of NAPNAP Partners for Vulnerable Youth, has launched a grassroots, peer-to-peer education campaign for healthcare providers. This essential training for nurses, physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants will increase their ability to quickly assess the healthcare needs of trafficking victims and spot risk factors in children to prevent them from becoming victims. Donate today to help us protect vulnerable children.
