GlobeMed aims to strengthen the movement for global health equity by empowering students and communities to work together to improve the health of the impoverished around the world.

One billion people across the world lack access to health care systems. Each day, more than 36,000 people die preventable deaths. Without addressing poverty and poor health, we cannot break this cycle of suffering.
University students have the passion and energy to help tackle this challenge. GlobeMed aims to meet this challenge by engaging and training students to work with grassroots organizations across the world to improve the health of the impoverished. By partnering students and communities to combat poverty and poor health, we improve the lives of thousands of impoverished people across the world today and shape tomorrow’s leaders across all professions who will share a deep commitment to health equity and social justice.  
Our Approach
GlobeMed has developed a comprehensive set of programs to educate, enable, and inspire students across our network to understand growing inequities in global health and act to make an impact in the work of partner grassroots health organizations. GlobeMed’s approach to achieving our mission has three key elements:
Train students to lead GlobeMed chapters and become advocates for global health equity through:
Partner chapters with grassroots organizations to address health inequities in impoverished communities through:
  • Identifying and recruiting partner grassroots organizations
  • Helping chapters to organize fundraising campaigns for community-based projects
  • Supporting chapters to organize effective internships to work on-site with partner communities
Grow the movement for global health equity by:
  • Starting new university chapters and strengthening existing chapters
  • Engaging GlobeMed alumni, a pipeline of new leadership for global health
  • Collaborating with peer organizations to share lessons and best practices
  • Encouraging and informing university administrators and faculty to create new and improved global health programs for students
