The effects of human trafficking on the mental and physical health of formerly trafficked individuals from the Mekong subregion (Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam)

a PSC Small Fund Research Project

Investigator:   Vanesa Lisbeth Iglesias-Rios

Human trafficking is one of the world's fastest growing crimes and human rights violations. Human trafficking involves the recruitment and movement of individuals by force, coercion or deception for the purposes of criminal exploitation and abuse. Despite the trauma and violence inherent in most trafficking situations, little is known about the individual and public health implications of any form of human trafficking. This study examines the association between human trafficking, physical, and mental health outcomes among a cohort of 1,102 formerly trafficked individuals who experienced various forms of forced labor and exploitation in the Mekong subregion (Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam).

Funding Period: 02/01/2016 to 01/31/2017
