This brief explains human trafficking policies are needed to promote comprehensive primary prevention efforts that address known risk factors for victimization using multi-tiered strategies. It explains trafficking vulnerabilities occur at the individual, family/neighborhood, and societal levels, and presents a chart of risk factors in each level. Recommendations for coordinated primary prevention efforts by local task forces are made, as well as successful primary prevention strategies that address violence and crime prevention, housing and urban development, businesses, healthcare, and schools and child welfare services. 48 references.
