Objectives: Modern slavery is a human rights violation and a global public health concern. To date,
criminal justice approaches have dominated attempts to address it. Modern slavery has severe consequences
for peoples mental and physical health, and there is a pressing need to identify and implement
effective preventative measures. As such, a public health approach to modern slavery requires elucidation.
The objectives of this study were to explore the case for public health involvement in addressing
modern slavery and the components of a public health approach and to develop a globally relevant
framework for public health action.
Study design: A Rapid Evidence Assessment.
Methods: This study is a rapid systematic review of published literature and stakeholder consultation.
Results: The accounts of 32 consultees and evidence from 17 papers including reviews, commentaries
and primary studies were included in the evidence assessment. A strong ethical rationale for
public health engagement in addressing modern slavery was evident. Multilevel and multicomponent
interventional strategies were identified across global, national, regional, local and service
levels. Although public health could add value to existing approaches, multiple barriers and tensions
Conclusion: Published literature and stakeholder opinion indicate an emergent public health approach to
modern slavery. It involves intervention at multiple levels and is guided by a rights-based, survivorcentred
and trauma-informed approach. This synthesis offers an important early step in the construction
of a globally relevant public health approach to modern slavery.
