Prevention of Human Trafficking
CHI Produces Video on Human Trafficking
A new educational video describing the worldwide scope of human trafficking has been produced by the CHI Advocacy Group, along with the Violence Prevention Oversight Committee, as part of CHI's commitment to violence prevention. The 10-minute video, available for viewing on CHI's You Tube channel, is designed to raise awareness of a grim reality that affects millions of people. It is introduced by Colleen Scanlon, SVP and chief advocacy officer, and features two leading international experts in human trafficking - Roy Ahn, research director for the Human Trafficking Initiative at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston; and Wendy Macias Konstantopoulos, medical director of the Human Trafficking Initiative.
This issue is particularly significant to the health care industry: experts estimate that about half of all human trafficking victims will be seen at some point in health care settings. Worldwide, as many as 21 million people are trapped into forced labor, many in our own communities. The Advocacy page on Inside CHI includes additional resources on human trafficking.
CHI National Foundation provides investors the opportunities to make significant and impactful change to help CHI educate and understand the issue of human trafficking.
