With more than 150 member centres, in over 70 countries, we are the largest membership-based civil society organisation to work in the field of torture rehabilitation.

The movement supports its members in providing treatment to those in need, while working together to achieve justice for victims of torture and their families.

Our members work in a wide range of contexts, including some of the most repressive and conflict driven regimes in the world. They use different methods to address the effects of torture on individuals, families and communities, empowering torture survivors to resume as full a life as possible.

Because of our members, thousands of torture victims and their families around the world are able to overcome their trauma and rebuild their lives.

”The narrative of torture survivors is powerful, but the survivors have been silenced by the perpetrators. Rehabilitation helps them regain their dignity and humanity and helps them speak up again.“

- Dr. Boris Droždek
