Policy statement: Torture

WCPT supports the United Nations Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment and encourages its member organisations to call on their national governments to sign and comply with the convention.

WCPT has agreed a set of principles for which it calls on its member organisations and physical therapists globally to adhere to.

WCPT will support and encourage the international community, its member organisations and physical therapists to support fellow physical therapists and physical therapists’ families in the face of threats or reprisals resulting from a refusal to condone the use of torture or other forms of cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.
