Abstract

Torture is a significant, and at times devastating medical problem affecting large areas of the globe today. The vast number of refugees flowing from such areas to more hospitable lands makes the concern about torture's effects and treatment even more widespread. This paper attempts to put the various aspects of torture in context for health care professionals.
