The African Centre for Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture Victims (ACTV) is a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) established in 1993 with a mission to advocate against torture, gender-based violence and other forms of violence and provide holistic care to survivors. ACTV has a multidisciplinary team comprising of Lawyers, Medical doctors, Clinical Psychologists, Physiotherapists, Counsellors, Nurses and Social workers who provide treatment and rehabilitation services including legal advice to torture survivors. ACTV is the only NGO in Uganda that provides no cost holistic care in Uganda to both Nationals and Non-Nationals. We do advocacy against acts of Torture among state and non-state actors. We also chair the Coalition against Torture (CAT) in Uganda.
