[Editorial] Health providers—helping to disrupt human trafficking

In the early hours of July 23, 2017, a call to police led to the search of a tractor-trailer in a San Antonio, Texas, parking lot. 39 people, all undocumented immigrants, were found at the scene, ten died, and another 22 were hospitalised. Survivors reported a ghastly clandestine journey to cross the border from Mexico—no food, no water, in utter darkness, without air and cooling systems. Those who succumbed likely died of heat exposure and asphyxiation. One of the nation’s deadliest human trafficking incidents in years, it serves as a grim reminder of the harrowing risks individuals take in search of a better life, the toll on health, and the potential for unacceptable loss of life.
