For torture survivors
Torture is intended to degrade and dehumanise its victims; but, we believe there is a way forward to live as full life as possible through holistic rehabilitation. This includes medical and psychological support and legal support to the survivors of torture and victims’ families.
The IRCT network comprises over 140 rehabilitation centres in over 70 countries. As torture survivors have both urgent and highly specific needs, which also vary greatly depending on ones specific context (geographical, socio-economic, political, among others), we believe fully both local and global approaches to torture rehabilitation. This means a coordination of both global knowledge on the most up-to-date and best practices through our capacity building programmes and regional networks, and local and community-based approaches for what works best in a specific context.
The following pages provide information for torture survivors to access such services, in addition to the contact information from our members.
