commission on public health and human rights

Have you ever asked yourself, how poverty impacts health care in Switzerland? Or what role global warming plays in health and disease? To what extent did the refugee crisis impact our health care system?

The CoPHR (Commission on Public Health and Human Rights) brings together medical students from all over Switzerland to learn, explore and share ideas on a variety of issues related to Public Health and Human Rights.

Our mission is to host fun and creative projects throughout the year that raise awareness and educate other students about ongoing global health and human rights topics such as equity in healthcare, refugee and migrant health or healthcare in war zones. This includes organizing events, awareness campaigns, designing social media content, hosting book clubs and much more!

Curios? Sign up here and get informed about our first meeting, where we discuss current topics and brainstorm on ways to transform them into informative and creative projects. Should you have any questions in the meantime, feel free to contact us directly at
