Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is an integral component of NJAAP’s work on child abuse and neglect prevention. Over the last several years, NJAAP has been collaborating with a number of partners, including Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, Cooper University Medical Center, the CARES Institute at Rowan University, and others, to provide training to health care providers to improve the identification and trauma-informed care of human trafficking victims.

Recent activities have allowed us develop connections with other organizations throughout the country, including the Alliance to Stop Slavery and End Trafficking (ASSET), HEAL Trafficking (Health, Education, Advocacy, Linkage), and many others committed to ending human trafficking and modern day slavery.
