Subject: Issues to discuss

Dear List Members,

I have been thinking about a number of issues over the last couple of
months and wanted to discuss them with the list. It would be nice to
get a dialogue going about these or others issues and how they relate
to trafficking.

1. Public health and trafficking - what is the role of public
health officials? What is the role of public health organizations?
How is trafficking a public health issue? What can public health
organizations do to assist trafficked persons?

2. I believe that people international are conflating
trafficking and smuggling. This is illustrated on a daily basis on
Stop-Traffic, with newspaper clippings that use trafficking and
smuggling interchangeably. How do we educate people as to the
differences? What can we do to effect change?

Thanks and I look forward to reading your comments.

Melanie......
