The National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health (NPWH) position statement on human sex trafficking was approved by the Board of Directors January, 2017. NPWH recognizes the critical role of nurse practitioners who provide healthcare for adolescent and adult females in identifying, assessing and responding to the needs of trafficked female individuals. NPWH supports a comprehensive, coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to meet sex-trafficked individuals’ complex needs and help them address the challenges they face. Therefore, NPWH commits to provide leadership and collaborate with other organizations and agencies to deliver NP education, develop policies, and conduct or support research in a concerted effort to increase knowledge and provide resources for nurse practitioners to identify, assess, and respond to the needs of trafficked female individuals.
