[Correspondence] Assessment of sequelae of torture for refugees in host countries

Millions of refugees trying to escape destabilised countries are often described in the public as a threat or at least a challenge for integration, which distracts attention from the reasons why these populations leave their homes and occupations in the first place. Help in host countries focuses mainly on primary medical, psychosocial, and economic crisis interventions. However, a big, yet largely neglected, problem in the region is the exposure of many refugees from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan not only to war experiences but also to torture.
