GlobeMed at Brown is a student-run nonprofit that is partnered with an organization in Kenya to address issues of sexual health in a sustainable way.
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.
The chapter of GlobeMed at Brown will work specifically with fundraisers for a community in Kenya and will allow members to directly see how our money is being used. We have the ability to hold our partners accountable and make sure that sustainable change is taking place. It is through GlobeMed's unique partnerships with communities and the relationships we build that we can truly make a difference.
