Key Briefs & Reports: CAMSA Discusses Human Trafficking With UNHCR, HEI

unhcr_logoMarch 2, 2009: Representatives of the Coalition to Abolish Modern-day Slavery in Asia met last week with several key organizations to increase CAMSA’s effectiveness in combating human trafficking.

One such organization was the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). With international organizations like UNHCR supporting CAMSA’s work, we now have a stronger, wider network to fight human trafficking.

CAMSA representatives also met with Health Equity Initiatives (HEI), a local organization providing mental health services to refugees and other underserved communities. Because victims of human trafficking are vulnerable to disorders associated with different kinds of mistreatment, HEI’s services can be very valuable to the people CAMSA helps.
