Human trafficking refers to the process in which humans are converted to be trade commodities for sexual slavery, forced labor, or commercial sexual exploitation. It should be noted however that provision of spouse in terms of forced marriage, organ extractions such as surrogacy and removal of ova is considered human trafficking (Latonero, 2011 ) . It is so because humans should be left to make their own decisions, especially where they want to go to without being coerced. Human trafficking is considered as one of the public health issues as it touches on the wellbeing of the people. In this case, there are numerous mental and physical effects meted on the people being trafficked which include post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, chronic pelvic pain, injuries, malnutrition, and pain due to excessive work. Human trafficking is one of the public health concern which has adverse effects on the affected individuals, families and the entire community in different generations. In as much as there is no reliable data on the exact number of people who are being trafficked every year, the difference in the number of people who are being trafficked in both minors and adults is big.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
