JOGNN: Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking

The Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) supports ongoing culturally proficient educational training and awareness for nurses about human trafficking. Nurses should be cognizant of human trafficking, notice the signs of human trafficking, and be prepared to support victims of human trafficking.
AWHONN opposes laws and other policies that require nurses to report the results of patient screenings to law enforcement or other regulatory agencies without the consent of the person who experiences human trafficking.
