SciTech Partnerships for Human Rights

In 2008, AAAS launched On-call Scientists, a project matching scientists, engineers and health professionals with human rights organizations requiring their technical expertise.

This video tells the story of how science and technology are being applied in support of human rights, as told by our volunteers and human rights partners.
