Modern slavery risk mitigation training

Modern slavery describes situations where offenders use coercion, threats, or deception to exploit people and undermine their freedom.

Because modern slavery is wide-spread, with an estimated 40 million* people subjected throughout the world, this means there is a high risk that it is present in health service supply chains.

HSV provides resources for health services and suppliers to support their commitment to the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) with the aim of reducing modern slavery risk in the health sector.
