Our Strategy 2018–2021 sets out a vision for how the IRCT will work towards the improved quality of life for torture victims worldwide and contribute to a world without torture.

IRCT is uniquely positioned to take the lead in promoting global standards and evidence-based approaches to rehabilitation, in sharing knowledge on good rehabilitation practices and promoting sustainable support to torture victims through a strong and global movement. We do this on the basis of our health-based expertise on torture and its consequences developed through decades of support to torture victims worldwide.

The IRCT Strategy 2018-2021 was unanimously adopted by the IRCT Council in December 2017. The strategy is informed by a review of the IRCT and input provided by the whole membership, Council and Executive Committee members as well as key donors.
