P835 Modern Slavery

  • About This Course
  • Legislation

Trafficking in human beings is a modern form of slavery and is a well-known phenomenon throughout the European Union and beyond. After drug dealing and the weapons industry, human trafficking is the second largest criminal activity in the world today and it is a growing crime.

Identification is the most important step to provide protection and assistance to victims of trafficking. Victims often have a variety of physical and mental health needs, including psychological trauma, injuries from violence, head and neck trauma, sexually transmitted infections and other gynaecological problems, dental/oral problems and poor nutrition.

The focus of this course is to raise awareness and develop an understanding in the dental community, to introduce the crime of human trafficking and its correlations with human rights, ethical and health issues.
