Torture destroys the personality of the victim and disregards the intrinsic dignity of every human being. Despite the absolute prohibition of torture under international law, torture persists in all regions of the world. Concerns about the protection of national security and borders are increasingly used to allow torture and other forms of cruel, degrading and inhuman treatment. Its generalized consequences often go beyond the isolated act on an individual, since it can be transmitted from generation to generation and lead to cycles of violence.

The United Nations has since its inception condemned its practice as one of the most heinous acts that human beings commit against their fellow men.

Torture is considered a crime under international law. It is absolutely prohibited in all international instruments and cannot be justified under any circumstances.

Recovering from torture requires specialized, fast-acting programs. The work of rehabilitation centers and specialized organizations around the world has shown that victims can make the transition from horror to healing.
