Represents the findings of a two-year multi-country study on women's health and trafficking to the European Union. Finds that trafficking often has a profound impact on the health and well-being of women. Details the forms of abuse and risks that women experience, including physical, sexual and psychological abuse, the forced or coerced use of drugs and alcohol, social restrictions and manipulation, economic exploitation and debt bondage, legal insecurity, abusive working and living conditions, and a range of risks associated with being a migrant and/or marginalised. Argues that these abuses and risks impact women's physical, reproductive, and mental health, and can lead to the misuse of drugs or alcohol, diminish women s social and economic well-being, and limit their access to health and other support services.
