We believe every human life has equal value. This belief has drawn us together from all corners of the world. Health for all is within our grasp if we work together.
Founded by students in 2007, the GlobeMed network engages 1,500 undergraduates at 50 university-based chapters throughout the U.S. Our chapters are partnered one-to-one with community-based health organizations in 18 countries throughout Africa, Asia, North America, and South America. Fundraising and on-site efforts at each chapter contribute to one or more of six key areas of impact: Maternal Health, Water, Sanitation & Hygiene, Nutrition, Income Generation, Communicable Disease Prevention, and Capacity Building. Through their involvement today, our students and partners commit to a life of leadership in global health and social justice.
Throughout the year, GlobeMed chapters strengthen long-term partnerships through frequent communication, fundraise through innovative initiatives for health projects that help partner organizations achieve their mission, educate students about global health issues through a signature curriculum, and intern on-site with partner organizations.
