standing committee on reproductive health including AIDS

Standing Committee on AIDS and STDs – SCOAS was formed within IFMSA in 1992 as the result of IFMSA concern about the growing number of victims of AIDS and the will of medical students to create programs for the prevention of HIV and STDs, as well as programs for psychosocial support to PLHA.

We realized from the beginning that “the only way of fighting AIDS is through prevention, the only way

of prevention is trough education”, which remained our slogan up till now, as it applies not only to AIDS, but to most of the matters our committee is dealing with. Therefore, the main focus of our committee is on the activities, which emphasize already existing and bring creating new educational programs for medical students, as well as for general population.

As our activities were developing, we realized that in our aims, we should actually take “a step back” and pay our attention to the issues that come before the disease happens – reproductive health. So, we redirected our course towards promotion of healthy sexual and reproductive behavior, prevention of HIV and STDs, abortion prevention and appropriate use of contraceptives, reproductive rights, women’s rights and fight against domestic violence, with the particular aspect on adolescent health and the health of the mother and the child.

So, at our 47th General Assembly in Egypt , 1998, we changed the name of the committee to Standing Committee on Reproductive Health including AIDS – SCORA.

Now and here in Egypt we have a great responsibility to keep Egypt free from or getting red the little numbers of HIV carriers and of course STDs also……. So we have the chance , we mustn’t leave .

Aims :

To raise awareness among medical students about Reproductive Health enclosing satisfying sexual life, sexual education, family planning, gender equity, sexual violence, cultural and ethical issues, as well as HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Diseases related subjects.
To improve medical students knowledge and make them achieve counseling skills.
To open discussions, lectures and interactive games for elementary and high school students about issues of sexuality, reproductive health, AIDS and STDs and thus promoting healthy sexual behavior.
To promote media campaigns, condom and material distribution, and help fundraising.

Our medical system is preparing you to be a good physician. The medical Education system can provide you with all the data that you need for good diagnostics and treatment of your patients… But, The tools for teaching that have served yesterday’s doctors are inadequate for tomorrow’s doctors!

Doctors should be, competent and compassionate, have life-long learning and problem solving abilities, have good communication skills. On top of all this, they also have to be able to interpret and evaluate scientific data and be creative at solving problems.
