PARTNER RESOURCES

This toolkit is designed to assist health and mental health professionals, health
administrators, government officials, shelter staff, and other care providers in assessing
and improving health and mental health services available to children and adults who
are at risk of, or who have experienced human trafficking and exploitation (HT/E). The
kit may be used in the following ways:
• Administrators of a public or private hospital or clinic may use the toolkit to evaluate the health and
mental health services provided in their own facility to individuals with a history of HT/E and those
at risk of exploitation.
• Staff of a shelter may use it to assess their own facility’s on-site health and mental health services.
• Staff of a community organization may use the toolkit to assess the services of the local hospital,
clinic, or other health or mental health facility to which they send clients (part of their off-site
‘referral network’).
• Public health officials or other stakeholders may use the toolkit to evaluate the health and mental
health services available in a given community to those at risk for or who have experienced HT/E.

VEGA’s online platform of education resources includes learning modules (e.g., care pathways, scripts, how-to videos), interactive educational scenarios, and a Handbook.  These resources are based on a series of systematic reviews summarizing the scientific evidence.
