Human Trafficking
Human trafficking is a problem world-wide. From labor trafficking to sex trafficking of adults and children, many are abused and need assistance. This week’s discussion will focus on human trafficking of health-care professionals. Foreign-educated health care workers are recruited from third world countries to work in first world countries. Many healthcare workers migrate for many reasons, and when the offer of better work environment and pay comes to the table, some of the migrants find themselves victims of trafficking. The required reading for this weeks discussion by Kingma, and Castro-Palaganas et al., will give you the information you need to write an initial post summarizing the article, your thoughts and one approach to how this problem could be solved, or victims assisted. Remember to back up your position with references, including the peer responses made.

Human trafficking is a serious public policy issue, from children forced to be sex slaves to professionals abused when recruited from first world countries. This week you will learn a little about the topic regarding professional nurses trafficked and the effects upon their home countries. You have the opportunity to voice your opinion and respond to other posts regarding this crisis.
Alternatively, you can conduct research on the unique role healthcare workers can fulfill in recognizing and stopping human trafficking.
Please write at least 4 fully formed paragraphs. I am looking for you to demonstrate critical thought and analysis.
You must also thoughtfully respond to at least 1 other student’s post, though I encourage you to do more!
