The United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture gives us the opportunity to stand united and remind the world that torture is a cruel violation of human rights.
Rehabilitation is the theme for the 26 June 2012 campaign. Rehabilitation empowers torture victims to resume as full a life as possible. However, rebuilding the life of someone whose dignity has been destroyed takes time and is the result of long-term material, medical, psychological and social support.
Fact sheets can help increase the understanding and visibility of the problem of torture and can be used as handouts and/or in response to inquiries.
There are four languages available: English, French, Spanish and Arabic.

Print materials – Posters and logos
The new 26 June poster and logo depict rehabilitation as hope in a world where torture is still widely practiced.
The posters and logos can be used for local printing in t-shirts, badges or stickers or simply downloaded to be used in documents or online initiatives.
ICRTcampaign kit is the result of many contributions from organisations that, over the years, have commemorated 26 June.
