Doctors Who Torture accountability project

The purpose of this site is to show and promote progress in encouraging physicians, courts, and medical licensing boards to be more active in the movement to end torture. Doctors Who Torture has a number of resources including text of major standards by international medical groups and the United Nations that can be used as standards for holding physicians accountable; countries where physicians have assisted torture at any time after World War II; examples of how some countries or international courts have held doctors accountable for torture; and links to organizations that compile reports within which discussions of physician complicity for torture can be found.
