Health of trafficking survivors
The results of a survey
of 150 men and women in England in contact with post-trafficking support services was published in the American Journal of Public Health. Participants had been trafficked for sexual exploitation (29%), domestic servitude (29%), and labour exploitation (40%). 66% of women reported forced sex during trafficking, and there were high levels of depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
In related work, the team from King's College and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) updated and expanded
on a 2012 systematic review of the prevalence and risk of physical, mental and sexual health problems among trafficked people.
