The Standing Committee on Human Rights and Peace.
- Syrian Emergency Awareness: As AMSI’s Standing Committee for Human Rights and Peace (SCORP), we are dedicated to ensuring that healthcare, equity, and peace are achievable for all. Due to ongoing conflict in Syria, thousands of patients do not have adequate access to medical care there. Healthcare providers are often also at substantial risk in their efforts to deliver care. This year we wish to enrol an IFMSA SCORP project highlighting this ongoing humanitarian emergency situation in Syria.
- Intellectual Disability Teaching Project: People with intellectual disabilities (ID) are at an increased risk of many medical problems and face a significant health disadvantage. It is internationally recognised that people with ID have limited access to healthcare, and doctors often do not have the necessary communication skills to effectively interview such patients. As AMSI’s Standing Committee for Human Rights and Peace (SCORP), we propose to lobby for additional training to improve medical students' communication skills whilst interacting with patients with ID to improve the quality of care provided to these patients in future practice.

World Human Rights Day: December 10th
Our members from RCSI, UL and NUIG made a video outlining what human rights means to them. With enough commitment and passion to drive change, we can take a step in the right direction towards making universal human rights a reality for as many as we can.
