Dr. Evelina Roubou


As the President of IFMSA and a SheDecides Champion, I'm dedicated to creating a fairer and more inclusive world. My commitment extends to ensuring every individual, regardless of gender or background, exercises their fundamental right to health and self-determination. I passionately advocate for women's and girls' rights, pushing for equitable access to sexual and reproductive health. Aligning with SheDecides, I emphasize the crucial significance of bodily autonomy, promoting global health at its core. This role empowers me to contribute to a future where women and girls lead healthy, fulfilling lives, unlocking their full potential in all aspects of society.


IFMSA is a non-partisan and non-profit organization recognized as the representative body for 1.5 million medical students around the world. We envision a world in which all future healthcare professionals unite for global health and are equipped with the knowledge, skills and values to take on health leadership roles locally and globally. Our Standing Committee on SRHR including HIV&AIDS aims to provide our members with the tools necessary to advocate for sexual and reproductive health and rights within their respective communities in a culturally respectful manner.

How does IFMSA work to advance SRHR?

The IFMSA Asia-Pacific SRHR Summer School

SRHR Summer School Camp is an international camp and a Sub-Regional Training (SRT) aimed to build the capacity of medical students in the field of SRHR and create a global community of well-equipped, knowledgeable, empowered and sensitive future healthcare practitioners. It offered a variety of trainings for 5 days in Kathmandu, Nepal, such as Training Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Trainers (TSRHRT), Training on Advanced Comprehensive Sexuality Education (TACSE), Women's Reproductive Rights and Access to Safe Abortion (Ipas), and more, covering a wide range of topics and interpersonal skills.

SCORA Africa Bootcamp

The SCORA Africa Boot Camp is an event that unites passionate individuals dedicated to promoting sexual and reproductive health and provides a safe and empowering space to engage in meaningful discussions, exchange ideas, and foster collaborations with each other. This transformative program gives us an opportunity to touch base and serves as a unique platform for students and young professionals to converge, learn, and collaborate in their shared pursuit of creating positive change in regards to SRHR. It offered trainings such as Training New Trainers (TNT), TSRHRT, Violence to Victory (V2V), and HIV Education and Advocacy training (HEAT)

SRHR Advocacy Workshop

The SRHR Advocacy workshop is an internal capacity building initiative and is meticulously structured to address various facets of advocacy through the lens of SRHR, encompassing policy formulation, forging partnerships, participating in external meetings, fostering youth empowerment, and developing soft skills. It aims to build new generations of IFMSA advocates on SRHR issues and equalize knowledge gaps on external affairs among IFMSA members. Up to the one held in October, it has already been the fourth edition of the workshop, which welcomed 45 participants from 30 different national member organizations around the world.
