Identifying Victims of Human Trafficking

Inherent Challenges and Promising Strategies from the Field

Categorized Under: Families + Communities, Health



ICF International, in collaboration with Advocates for Human Potential (AHP), is conducting a study to develop information on how U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) programs are currently addressing the needs of victims of human trafficking, including domestic victims (i.e., citizens and legal permanent residents), with a priority focus on domestic youth. This issue brief focuses on the identification of international and domestic victims of human trafficking in the United States and presents the inherent challenges to identifying victims based on the definition provided in the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (TVPA), as well as promising strategies undertaken by law enforcement, service providers, and other organizations to identify and reach victims.
