MONICA EZOMAZINO, Akokuwebe (2017) Human Trafficking for Sexual Exploitation: Evaluating the health consequences of victims

Abstract:
Sexually transmissible diseases linked to binding or coerced prostitution activities, especially HIV, have attracted considerable attention. Other health issues are sometimes glossed over, both in the academic literature and by rehabilitation organizations working with trafficked individuals. Based on field research conducted in Lagos and Oyo States, the study focuses on health issues experienced by trafficking victims and rehabilitated individuals. The paper documents the physical and psychological effects of trafficking as resulting from the living conditions of victims. It also investigates the (self)- medication practices among trafficked individuals

Keywords: Health, human trafficking, rehabilitation
