The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office on Trafficking in Persons (OTIP) has released the “Core Competencies for Human Trafficking Response in Health Care and Behavioral Health Systems.” These core competencies pinpoint skill sets that health care and behavioral health practitioners (HCPs) should acquire to identify, respond to, and serve individuals who have experienced trafficking and individuals at risk of trafficking.

These core competencies were developed in partnership with HEAL Trafficking, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children, and the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and funded by OTIP. The National Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance Center facilitated a 3-year process to develop the
competencies.
