Torture Victims Have a Right to Rehabilitation: A Guide for Service Providers to Assist Victims of Torture in Securing Their Right to Rehabilitation

The PARI Network has developed a Rehabilitation Manual that speaks to victims' rights against torture. It is a guide for service providers to assist victims of torture in securing their right to rehabilitation. The overall objective of the Manual is to enhance African service providers' understanding of torture and how they can assist torture survivors in securing their right to rehabilitation. This is because rehabilitation is more than just care for those who have been tortured. It is a human right which belongs to every victim, regardless of who or where they are.
