HEAL’s services - including education, training, customized materials, consultation, technical assistance and advocacy work - are used the world over to not only shine a spotlight on the plight of those being trafficked, but also to put an end to the practice. They engage with a global network of more than 3,800 healthcare workers and other multidisciplinary professionals in 45 countries, including survivors of human trafficking, to circulate their cutting-edge resources, share best practices and provide a critical support space to healthcare workers engaging with trafficking on the front lines.
