HHS Innovation Challenge to Prevent Human Trafficking Among Women and Girls

February 1

Call for innovative and preventive solutions to human trafficking among women and girls.

OWH is creating a national competition to identify existing innovative programs that address human trafficking prevention (e.g., at the primary, secondary, and/or tertiary levels) among women and girls in the United States. The goal of this competition is to identify and award existing programs that demonstrate effectiveness in preventing human trafficking and/or improving health outcomes related to human trafficking among women and girls, sustainable program practices, and the ability of the program to be expanded and/or replicated.
Subject and Scope of Prize Competition

The program must demonstrate evidence-based interventions and approaches to preventing the occurrence and/or improving health outcomes related to human trafficking on women and girls. The program should include attention to disparities, including racial/ethnic, sex, sexual orientation, disabilities, or social determinants of health that contribute to an increased risk of being trafficked. The program will be shared with the general public, including through informational webinars, websites, social media, and listservs.
