Studies have shown that even outside of a disaster context, approximately 50% of individuals who have been trafficked saw a health professional while being trafficked. However, first responders are rarely trained to recognize these patients, despite their opportunity to intervene. By becoming more aware of the problem and how to help, responders working both in and outside of a disaster context can connect individuals with assistance.
