GlobeMed


 
Through training students in global health, partnering with effective grassroots organizations, and growing its network of chapters, GlobeMed aims to strengthen the movement fighting for equity in global health.
 
 

GlobeMed

GlobeMed is a national organization of student-led chapters at universities across the country that partner with grassroots NGOs serving poor communities. GlobeMed’s national headquarters are located in Evanston, IL and the network has grown to over 30 campuses with the hub at Northwestern. GlobeMed enables students and communities to work together to improve the health of the poor.

GlobeMed at Northwestern

Since the chapter’s founding, more than one hundred students have been members of GlobeMed at Northwestern. These members, along with hundreds of other students on the Northwestern campus, have participated in GlobeMed’s high-impact programming. In addition to providing students with the knowledge and skills to address issues of global health, these events have mobilized participants to join in the movement for global health equity. GlobeMed has developed a comprehensive set of programs to educate, enable, and inspire students to understand growing inequities in global health and to actively make an impact in the work of partner grassroots health organizations. At Northwestern, students learn about global health practice and policy through globalhealthU, GlobeMed’s year-round global health curriculum.

GlobeMed at Northwestern has funded the design and construction of the H.O.P.E. Center, a village-level health center that works with the Ghana Health Services to deliver needed public health services to the eight rural communities that otherwise lack access to health care. The H.O.P.E. Center currently serves 6,000 people in eight villages with child welfare clinics, childhood immunizations, maternal health classes, insecticide-treated bed net distribution, and family planning services. Currently, GlobeMed at NU is working to address malnutrition through a community-based nutrition and education program. Their partnership with the H.O.P.E. Centre has enabled Northwestern undergraduates to see first-hand what it takes to build, develop, and maintain a clinic in Africa.
