Every year the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations hosts two meeting of our General-Assembly, once in March and once in August. This year’s March Meeting is being hosted by our counterparts in Slovenia (SloMSIC)!
Policy documents are the backbone of IFMSA’s advocacy – without our written and agreed stances, we are not able to shape discussions and negotiations related to global health issues. During every General Assembly, our National Member Organizations adopt new policy documents which represent our stances on these matters. Find all adopted policy documents here: http://ifmsa.org/policy-documents/
We’re looking for input on policies by our SfGH members! There is an almost record-breaking number of policies being proposed this year, many for the first time. Students for Global Health has taken a leading role in three of them, further steered two more and inputted into many others but more heads are better than fewer so please take a look at any that interest you and leave your comments!
SfGH has led (with partners in India, Australia, Lebanon, Rwanda and Pakistan) the process for the policies on HPV Vaccines, Health Emergencies, and Trade & Health so pay particular attention to these.
