On May 23, Warnath Group conducted ongoing training with the Cañas, Guanacaste multi-disciplinary team (MDT), or Local Subsystem of Protection (SSLP). This training focused on the constituent elements of trafficking in persons, identifying indicators of child and adolescent trafficking, and the relevant institutional protocols to follow in the preliminary identification and referral of child and adolescent trafficking victims. Participants also gained insights into the role and care measures undertaken by the Immediate Response Team (ERI) and familiarized themselves with the ERI Accreditation Application Report.
Through the IACT Program, Warnath Group is working with MDTs to strengthen the capacity of community-based practitioners to conduct preliminary identification, referral, and protection of child trafficking victims. As the frontline in local protection efforts, MDT practitioners also support the recovery and reintegration of child trafficking victims in their communities.
The IACT Program is funded through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of State Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (J/TIP).
