The objective of the CCDH through the creation of this section, the fourth of its kind after those of Laâyoune, Oujda and Agadir, is to strengthen its action at the local level, promote the culture of human rights, support the regionalization and decentralization and monitor cases of human rights on the basis of an outreach politicy.

Mr. Chbaatou deemed opening a CCDH section in Midelt was a courageous step within the framework of the appropriate institutional set-up for the CCDH for the implementation of its programs.
