“Dear SCORAngels,

We are pleased to announce our second edition of SCORA X-Change!

We believe in the power of youth commitment to ensure a proper sexual education and health conditions.
Being concerned and aware of the increasing data within the reproductive health field, we want to
empower you to be the change and take real action. Through SCORA X-Change program, Romania would
like to invite you to stand up for the proper sexual healthcare system that our world so strongly needs.

We are convinced that a great impact is constructed by our hard work on advocacy and raising awareness
thanks to the actions and the people who contribute to achieve it. Therefore, by connecting different
cultures and ideas we would like to challenge the participants of the program to give their best in making a
small step towards better local, national and international health systems.

Our organizing committee has one great goal. To unite our forces and to achieve both the personal
development, as well as building capacity to ensure our society’s welfare. Romania has a lot to offer in this
perspective, especially when the help is needed and there are a few promoters in the selected field. The need
of aid, guidance and support is well-known in our national healthcare scheme and it provides significant
examples and situations that can lead to a better outcome of the project, gaining benefits in the same time.
In addition, we strongly believe that by joining our exchange, besides gaining the SCORA experience, you
can enjoy a great social and cultural program, as well as becoming part of a family of SCORAngels.

This summer, SCORA X-Change Romanian team will try to combine novelty with diversity,
multiculturalism and medical realities, offering the opportunity to every student that wants to improve his
knowledges and skills.

Strong enough to take action? JOIN US!

Known as The Cultural Capital of Romania, Iași is a symbol in Romanian

history. The historian Nicolae Iorga said „There should be no Romanian
who does not know of it”. Still referred to as The Moldavian Capital, Iași is
the most important political, economic and cultural centre of the Moldavian
region of Romania, as well as one of the oldest cities in our country.
Deeply rooted in history, the city prides itself with publishing the first
Romanian newspaper and establishing the first Romanian university, as well
as the first National Theatre. Today, Iași is home to five universities.

Bucharest is Romania’s largest city and capital. Known in the past as “The
Little Paris”, Bucharest has changed a lot lately, and today it has become a
very interesting mix of old and new. Finding a 300 year old church, a steel-
and-glass office buildings and Communist-era apartment blocks next to one
another is a common sight. Bucharest offers some excellent attractions, and
has, in recent years, cultivated a sophisticated, trendy, and modern
sensibility that many have come to expect from a European capital.
We invite you to discover the best attractions in Bucharest including The
Palace of Parliament which is the biggest administrative construction in
Europe and the world’s second biggest after the Pentagon building in
Washington, and The lipscani area, the oldest remaining part of Bucharest,
known as the “historical center”, famed for its nightlife.

One of the largest cities of Romania and the capital of Dolj County, Craiova
is located in the southern part of the country, at approximately equal
distances from the Southern Carpathians(nor th) and the River
Danube(south). It is a longstanding political centre, the chief commercial city
and the most important city of Oltenia. The university town of Craiova,
prides itself on the strong academic tradition and wealth of important
historical figures who passed through here on their journey to fame: the
world-famous sculptor Constantin Brancusi - who studied at the Craiova Art
School and carved his first sculptures here, and Craiova-born Petrache
Poenaru - inventor of the first cartridge fountain pen. The most important
landmark is Nicolae Romanescu Park – the largest natural park in eastern
Europe. This park has a few interesting features: The Suspended Bridge

Brașov (pronounced Bra-shov), known as Kronstadt in German or Brassó in
Hungarian has a population of 283,901 and is the 7th largest city in Romania. It is
located almost in the centre of the country and surrounded by the Carpathian
Mountains. The city provides a mix of wonderful mountain scenery in the nearby
Poiana Braşov and medieval history with German influences in the old town. The city
is 176 km from Bucharest. Braşov is up there with Sinaia and the surrounding
mountain resorts as the most visited city in Transylvania, Romania, and this is
something that’s not in vain. Braşov boasts everything from dynamic modern city life
to old world charm and fascinating scenery. Also, it’s pleasant to have some of the
extras as well, including some of the best cleanliness records in the country, great
transport and great food. Even though it’s a bit overpriced for Romanian standards,
especially in the high season, Braşov is definitely worth it. As some people say,
„Why bother coming to Romania if you’re not going to see Braşov?” The Braşov
county is one of the most visited by tourists. The average temperature is 7.6°C only,
even though in summer temperatures may reach up to 35°C.
