Welcome to SCORP!

“The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil but by those who watch them without doing anything.”

-Albert Einstein.

Medicine is a social profession. Doctors do not merely have a job to treat the physical ailments that the human body succumbs to but can cater to a number of other forms of ailments too- mental and social. Since the expanse of medicine extends beyond imagination, it is safe to say that physicians play a major role in betterment of the world.
As we progress into an era of pure technological success, it’s a must that we preserve the past, act in the present and plan the future- we at MSAI strongly agree with this concept. At the turn of the millennium came the Millennium Development Goals, but with it came many more unaddressed issues. Today as the world experiences the worse human life crisis; it is only CHANGE that can save us. In India, every state and every city has its on human rights issues. And PEACE, well that’s just an abstract thought. The relevance of this topic in today’s scenario makes us wish that we could contribute to it in some way or the other.

SCORP :- Standing Committee for Human Rights and Peace !

Hmmm, Yes Human Rights and peace!
A small effort to highlight Medical Humanities and enhance Humanity in Medicine. It starts with advocacy, Proceeds to awareness and action culminates in peaceful coexistences. At SCORP-India we advocate and spread awareness of Human rights and peaceful coexistence through various mass education programs and healthcare camps.
Confused ….? DON’T BE

CALL FOR ACTION:

We have a choice to make and yes, some responsible citizens of the world have made their choice.
The United Nations has set down the Sustainable Development Goals which all of us have to achieve till 2030 such that we can create a better world for everyone. The IFMSA has adopted 5 of the 17 goals to work on with the agenda – Think Globally, Act Locally. Thus, we at MSAI under the Standing Committee of Human Rights and Peace have fallen in line with these global agendas, identified some problems to be tackled at a local level and now stretch out our hands to seek your help.
The 5 adopted Goals:

  • No Poverty
  • No Hunger
  • Health and Well Being
  • Quality Education
  • Reduce inequalities

Some of the events which we have jotted down and wish to work for in the year 2016-17:

  • Calendar Girls
  • Mental Health including Positive Body Image Propagation to Tackle Eating Disorders
  • Elderly Abuse
  • Child Abuse
  • Bioethics for Medical Students
  • Disaster Preparedness and the Health Care During Disasters

We will support all ideas that each one of you come up with and will guide you to implement them to action. This page will serve as a platform for

  • New Ideas for solving a local problem which compromises human rights and about the national and international days
