Government Accountability for Torture and Ill-Treatment in Health Settings

  • Author: Open Society Foundations


This briefing paper focuses on torture and ill-treatment in health settings, including hospitals, clinics, hospices, people’s homes, or anywhere health care is delivered. It does not seek to stigmatize health providers as “torturers,” but rather to focus on government accountability for placing health providers and patients in unacceptable situations whereby torture and ill-treatment is neither documented, prevented, punished, nor redressed.
