Infographic Resource Addresses Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Trafficking of Minors

March 19, 2014

IOM Infographic

The Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council have released an infographic focusing on highlights of their OJJDP-funded report "Confronting Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Sex Trafficking of Minors in the United States." The infographic illustrates how schools, police, victim services, businesses, the legal system, and health care providers can collaborate in preventing, identifying, and responding to commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors. Professionals who interact regularly with youth may not recognize those who are at risk or who may be victims of commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking. The report offers strategies, legislative approaches, and a research agenda around this victimization.
