Standing Committee on Public Health

The Standing Committee on Public Health (SCOPH) is a group of medical students from all over Nigeria who come together to learn, build skills, cooperate, explore and share ideas about public health issues. This includes things like global health issues, health policies, health promotion and education activities.

History of the Committee

The Standing Committee on Public Health (SCOPH) brings together medical students from all over the world to learn, build skills, cooperate, explore and share ideas to address all issues related to Public Health, including Global Health issues, health policies, health promotion, and education activities.

Medical students of the IFMSA formed the Standing Committee on Students’ Health (SCOSH) in 1952, driven by a strong will to take an active part in preventing and making policies concerning health problems. During the following years, the wide variety of activities led to the change of SCOSH to the Standing Committee on Health (SCOH) in 1963.

In 1983 the name of the Committee changed once more to the Standing Committee on Public Health (SCOPH).

During these six decades, SCOPHeroes have implemented, maintained and improved a wide variety of community-based projects on a local, national and international level. Through these activities, we are pursuing our vision of a healthy society and we are developing our own potential of being complete and skillful health professionals.
