The International Center for Health, Law and Ethics at the University of Haifa initiated an international project, the aim of which is to form a new, modern curriculum of medical ethics to be taught in medical schools all over the world. The UNESCO Chair adopted the idea and undertook the mission. The Chair started to establish a network of Unit within universities and research centers committed to disseminating, improving and monitoring education in ethics in medical schools- which led to the formation of the UNESCO MSAI Bioethics Unit. The Unit holds several activities and competitions throughout the year, aimed at ensuring the upcoming generations of doctors are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to solve ethical dilemmas they may face in their practice
MSFC :Founded by medical students in 1993 as a response to the almost complete deficit of abortion education in their medical training, Medical Students for Choice an internationally spread non-profit, has filled a unique niche in the abortion rights movement. In line with MSFC’s core values, we at MSFC India work to ensure that medical students and trainees are educated about all aspects of reproductive health care, including abortion. With holistic abortion training still lacking in medical school curricula, MSFC members across the world organize to change institutional policies and broaden opportunities for all their fellow students to receive family planning education.
