Medizin und Menschenrechte_Logo The Erlangen Medical Assistance for Refugees Project was established by the Medicine and Human Rights working group. In December 2009, we decided to establish a contact hub through which medical assistance could be provided to refugees; this has been in operation since spring 2010. More Information.

The Catholic and the Protestant student communities offer many intercultural activies during the semesters. Here you can find their web appearance.
