In 2014, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention against Torture – the principal global document in the fight against torture - the OMCT launched a global civil society initiative to reinforce the use of the Convention to eradicate torture. At the request of the Committee and the SOS-Torture Network, the OMCT has taken up the role as civil society coordinator for organisations participating in the review sessions of the Committee against Torture, which take place for all States every four years.
The OMCT has also taken this one step further. For example, they launched an additional project to engage in a three-year effort to secure the domestic implementation of the Convention against Torture in six focus countries.
Finally, the OMCT not only provided assistance to victims through general financial aid but also through the establishment of two Rehabilitation Centres in Tunisia called SANAD Centres.
