Association Africaine de Defense des Droits de l'Homme (ASADHO) is a non-political, non-governmental organization working for human rights in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It was formed on January 10, 1991 in Kinshasa by a group of young doctors, journalists and lawyers who were concerned about the abuses of the regime of Mobutu Sese Seko.

ASADHO works to defend human rights through aggressive monitoring, reporting and denunciation of killings, torture, rape, maiming, the use of child soldiers and other abuses. The organization has braches throughout the country which compile the information for inclusion in press releases and reports which ASADHO is then able to bring to the attention of policymakers.
