The absolute and universal prohibition of torture, a cornerstone of international human rights protection, is clearly established in several human rights treaties. The most detailed of these treaties, the United Nations Convention against Torture, has been ratified by more than 150 countries in the world, and it thus provides a nearly global framework for ending torture and ill-treatment and ensuring access to rehabilitation services for survivors. Within the UN human rights system, there are several mechanisms mandated to monitor and/or promote the implementation of the prohibition against torture at the national level. For torture rehabilitation organisations, it may be relevant to engage with these mechanisms as part of their efforts to end torture at home and ensure that victims receive adequate redress, including rehabilitation.
