Prevention

 
 
 

The preventive work of HuMSIRC can be divided into three groups.

1.     Standing Committee on Reproductive Health (SCORA)

2.     Standing Committee on Public Health (SCOPH)

3.     Teddy Bear Hospital

The work of SCORA is supervised by the National Officer on Reproductive Health. Their aim is to raise awareness on a variety of reproductive health issues amongst the wide public, to spread the knowledge regarding HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections (STI's) and to decrease stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS.

The work of SCOPH is supervised by the National Officer on Public Health. It emphasizes the importance of various health issues such as the effect of smoking and drug abuse, malnutrition and the increase in obesity all around the world.

The Teddy Bear Hospital is a program of HuMSIRC which is coordinated by each Local Committee individually. The members of the local committees on many occasions visit some of the local day care centers or kindergartens where they talk and play with the children while teaching them about how to eat healthy and what can they expect when at the doctor’s office.
