Standing Committee On Public Health
Welcome to SCOPH!
With a vision of a world where all Medical Students contribute to their full potential towards the making of healthier communities in their capacity as medical students and as future healthcare providers, SCOPH or Standing Committee for Public Health primarily deals with the public health scenario. It involves functioning at a ground level, directly dealing with the beneficiaries. In most developing nations public health is overlooked, thus being beacons of change is the need of the hour.Over these years, SCOPHeroes have created an impact locally as well as globally by conducting various Pan-India campaigns, transcending all possible hurdles and boundaries of age,class and religion to address all issues related to public health, including global health issues, health policies, health promotion and education.Our team has passionately explored all realms of healthcare, from guiding school children to mothers, from old to the specially-abled. Here through education, empowerment, and support we strive to achieve ‘health for all’, we strive to create an impact.
