SSS focuses on major health topics and medical student-related interests via six standing committees, which are:
Public Health (SCOPH)
Sexual and Reproductive Health including HIV/AIDS (SCORA)
Medical Education (SCOME)
Child Health (SCOCH)
Professional and Research Exchanges (SCOPE, SCORE)
The work of each standing committee is complemented by several activities, such as trainings, campaigns and advocacy efforts, offering medical students the space to learn in a number of settings. Many projects, activities, conferences and workshops are organized each year allowing students to become initiates of change in their society.
