Responding to human trafficking

(June 2018) – Human trafficking is a global issue, and anyone from any country can become a victim. In the United States, there were more than 8,500 tips to the U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline in 2017, nearly 25 percent of which involved children and youth. At Dignity Health we aim to change that. 

We are committed to training more staff, establishing more community partnerships, and reaching more victims of human trafficking. A conference for health care professionals, first responders, and victim service providers will be held on August 6 - 7 in Mesa, Ariz. to educate care providers on how to recognize victims and provide trauma-informed care. Please register for the conference here

Donors to Dignity Health Foundation help fund this continuing education, enabling some of the most vulnerable people in our community to be cared for.
