Standing Committee on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights
SCORA was first established in 1992 under the name of the Standing Committee on AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Diseases, and received its current name in 2014. In 2020, for the first time in Azerbaijan, the committee was activated. The official color of the Standing Committee on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights is red, and those who volunteer on the committee are called SCORAngel. As a committee, our mission is to provide our volunteers with the tools they need to promote sexual and reproductive health and rights by adapting to the culture of the community to which they belong, and our vision is to create a world in which each individual practices sexual and reproductive health equally, without stigma or discrimination.
