Examples of recent achievements
Collaboration with UNAIDS
Our collaboration with UNAIDS is mainly in the field of discrimination and stigma in healthcare, working jointly in their agenda on this topic. For the term 2017-2018, we’ve been awarded a grant that allowed us to enhance our work in the Zero Discrimination Agenda, developing a set of resources and providing support to multiple country-based initiatives and research projects.
Collaboration with Ipas
IFMSA has been collaborated successfully with Ipas in conducting workshops in all regions of IFMSA on access to safe abortion. Both have also worked together in the production of a training manual for health students and professionals in this field of work.
International Peer Education Trainings
For many years now, SCORA has overviewed the organization of International Peer Education Trainings (IPET), trainings that target medical students who would like to develop their skills as peer educators especially having in mind international cooperation for Comprehensive Sexuality Education.
SCORA has helped organize online campaigns for IFMSA to celebrate important international days, such as the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) and International Day of Pink campaign.
Change of the name
In August Meeting 2014, SCORA updated its name from “Reproductive Health including HIV/AIDS” to “Sexual and Reproductive Health including HIV/AIDS” to better reflect the vision and mission of the standing committee. In 2019, the name has been updated to include “Rights” and differentiate “HIV and AIDS”. Its current full name is “Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights including HIV and AIDS”.
