Guide to Protecting Human Subjects


This guide is one of four guides originally developed for OVC and the grantees who received funding to serve victims of human trafficking.

If your program intends to conduct a needs assessment or program evaluation, you must be aware of federal regulations that protect the privacy and confidentiality of persons involved in research (i.e., human subjects). This guide provides basic information about these federal regulations and explains how they pertain to your needs assessment or program evaluation.
