Linguistic And Cultural Mediation

Linguistic and cultural mediation services are fundamental to everything we do.

Medici Contro la Tortura relies on interpreters and cultural mediators with specific experience related to asylum seekers and refugees who have survived torture and other forms of inhumane, degrading treatment, and these figures are an integral part of the multidisciplinary team assisting our beneficiaries.

Social workers and cultural mediators accompany the most fragile victims in their dealings with the public healthcare system, especially when invasive medical exams are involved, acting as co-therapists in this psychological setting.
