This Protocol is the result of three years of analysis, research, and drafting undertaken by more than 75 forensic doctors, physicians, psychologists, human rights monitors, and lawyers who represent 40 organizations and institutions from 15 countries. The project was conceived in March, 1996, after an international symposium on "Medicine and Human Rights", held in Adana by the Turkish Medical Association. The drafting process culminated at a meeting in Istanbul in March, 1999, when the manual reached its final form. It was submitted to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in August, 1999. Includes four annexes: I. Principles on the Effective Investigation and Documentation of Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishments; II. Diagnostic tests; III.
