This is Public Health!


The Standing Committee on Public Health (SCOPH) is the first committee to be activated within
ifmsa-iraq.It started with Your Health First in 2012, and then expanded to be the largest
committee in ifmsa-iraq today. SCOPH works mainly on Public Health issues including
communicable diseases, noncommunicable diseases, nutrition and health awareness and

SCOPH aims to build future Iraqi physicians with the skills and knowledge needed to work on
the most pressing public health issues facing Iraq and the region. By providing the training,
