Spl health care essential for traumatised survivors
Special health care is essential for survivors of human trafficking as they remain under severe mental and physical trauma, said speakers at a discussion yesterday.
They also put emphasis on support services for the survivors so that the latter could recover from the trauma, and reintegrate in the society, said a press release.
They made the comments at a discussion on “Addressing health issues of victims of trafficking and abuse in Jessore and Satkhira districts” organised by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) at a hotel in the capital. Azam E Sadat, deputy secretary of health and family welfare ministry, said the issue of human trafficking should primarily be viewed from a humanitarian perspective.
Samir K Howlader, national programme officer (migration health) of IOM, presented a paper.
