Who We Are

NHTTAC delivers training and technical assistance (T/TA) on behalf of the Office on Trafficking in Persons (OTIP) to inform and enhance the public health response to human trafficking. Operating under the Administration for Children and Families within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, OTIP's mission is to combat human trafficking by supporting and leading systems that prevent trafficking through public awareness and to protect victims through identification and assistance, helping them rebuild their lives and become self-sufficient. NHTTAC supports OTIP in developing and delivering training and technical assistance that strengthens anti-trafficking work and aids OTIP in fulfilling its mission.
