ABSTRACT
The article reports on the Care Full initiative, a joint project of Pharos, Amnesty International and the Dutch Council for Refugees, which seeks to create awareness of the importance of medical considerations in the asylum procedure. As reported, the Care Full initiative, which was launched in 2006, aims to improve refugee status determination (RSD) processes for victims of torture by encouraging concerned authorities to take an account of the psychological, socio-cultural and physical factors that restrain asylum seekers from presenting a complete account of their experiences.
