The Journal of Poverty and Social Justice has published a policy and practice article ‘Exploring a public health approach to modern slavery: potential, problems and translating principles into practice’ co-authored by April McCoig, IASC Victims and Partnerships lead, Dr Liz Such, University of Sheffield, and Dr Ines Campos-Matos, Office for Health Improvement and Disparities.

Public health approaches have been applied to a range of socially complex and long standing problems in recent years, for example, serious violence. This journal article reflects on the efforts that have been made to consider modern slavery through a public health lens, noting a review of modern slavery and public health published by Public Health England and the University of Sheffield in 2017 and subsequent work identifying an emergent public health approach to modern slavery in 2020.
