Who We Are

GlobeMed envisions a world in which every human has the opportunity to live a healthy life. To act on this vision, GlobeMed advances the movement for global health equity by empowering students and communities to work together to improve the health of people living in poverty.

GlobeMed was founded ten years ago by a group of students who sought to challenge the status quo. Frustrated by the global engagement options offered on their campuses, they created a new model to partner with grassroots leaders who are already working to unleash the potential of their own communities. In the past decade GlobeMed students have invested nearly $3 million in local health initiatives across 19 countries while challenging mainstream perceptions of young people’s capabilities.

Today, GlobeMed harnesses the passion and curiosity of university students by engaging them in a transformative learning process to build the confidence, courage and long-term commitment needed to become leaders for health equity. GlobeMed maintains 59 university chapters, each of which partners with one grassroots partner in Africa, Asia and the Americas.  These partnerships take learning into the communities around the world to help undergraduate students develop essential skills and perspectives needed to advance the movement for global health equity.

GlobeMed’s core programs create a community of peers deeply ensconced in the conversation surrounding health equity and social justice. These programs include:

globalhealthU: Signature global health and leadership curriculum

Leadership Institute: Annual training event for chapter leadership

Summit: Annual network-wide global health conference

Grassroots On-Site Work (GROW): International internship program

GROW Institute: Comprehensive in-person pre-departure training for GROW

Partner Forum: Regional gathering of grassroots partners
