The Standing Committee on Human Rights and Peace unite students who strive to create an equal and peaceful world and believe in international, intercultural as well as interpersonal solidarity. We believe in everybody’s responsibility as well as the ability to contribute to creating this world, as human rights can only exist when it applies to all humans.

The Standing Committee on Human Rights and Peace

Standing Committee on Human Rights and Peace

SCORP stands for the Standing Committee on Human Rights and Peace. It is a committee within the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA). SCORP is composed of medical students from several medical school associations in Nigeria who are passionate about advocating for human rights, promoting peace, and addressing social justice issues.

History of the Committee

In 1983, the Standing Committee on Refugees was formed, aiming to call attention to the problems faced by the displaced population and participate in relief efforts. The committee members soon realized that these efforts were merely palliative, whereas a sustainable solution would have to address the root of the problem – violence, conflicts and human rights violations.

In 1995, the committee changed the name to the Standing Committee on Refugees and Peace, and finally, in 2005 it became the SCORP that we know today, the Standing Committee on Human Rights and Peace.

Vision

SCORP has a vision of a peaceful world where all individuals are entitled to full and equal access to their human rights, where no one is left behind, where priority is given to people in greatest need and where the entire society, including medical students and health workers, unite to support vulnerable groups.

Mission

The mission of SCORP is to empower and motivate medical students to actively promote and protect human rights and peace through advocacy, capacity building, and awareness raising, and by supporting the students in carrying out activities and projects that contribute to creating a fair and peaceful world.
