About GlobeMed Mission GlobeMed aims to strengthen the movement for global health equity by empowering students and communities to work together to improve the health of people living in poverty around the world.

Vision We envision a world in which health – the ability to not only survive but thrive – is possible for all people, regardless of where they call home.

We believe every human life has equal worth and every person deserves the chance to thrive. This belief has drawn together our network of students, communities, and supporters from all walks of life and from every corner of the world. Health for all is within our grasp, but we can only achieve it by working together.


Message from the Co-Presidents Dear Friends of GlobeMed, After years of collaborating and fundraising, the shelter for victims of domestic violence in Siuna, Nicaragua has finally become a reality. The Psychosocial Center for Victims of Violence-- El Centro De Atención Psicosocial para Victimas de Violencia (CAP)-- opened its doors to women and children in March, 2014. With the support of over 18 local, communitybased organizations, Salud sin Limites and GlobeMed are proud to bring CAP to the community and provide services such as support groups and legal counseling. The accomplishment could not have been achieved without the hard work and dedication of the team of students in GlobeMed at Duke’s chapter. Over forty students planned fundraising events that would bring in over $10,000 this academic year; learned about and discussed global health issues in GlobeMed’s signature education component, globalhealthU; and hosted an art exchange project between students of Siuna, Nicaragua and the John Avery Boys & Girls Club in Durham, NC. Five dedicated students worked on the ground in Siuna this summer on the Grassroots On-site Work (GROW) internship, writing and hosting health education radio programs, continuing the art exchange project, and launching a photo program called “Nuevas Perspectivas” for students to document and discuss conditions they wanted to improve in their own community. Despite these wonderful achievements, our work is far from finished. We are in the process of installing electricity in the shelter to increase comfort and safety for residents, as well as fixing unfinished areas of the building’s roof. We also look forward to expanding our health projects and impact in the coming years with new projects in Siuna as we continue on our Since our founding in mission to bring health to all. In solidarity, Emily Du & Dan Moore Co-presidents, GlobeMed at Duke

September 2010, our chapter has grown from 10 members to 40.


About Us GlobeMed at Duke

GlobeMed at Duke was founded in 2010 and has since grown from 10 founding E-Board members to over 40 active members. We have had three Grassroots On-site Work (GROW) internships in Siuna, Nicaragua. As a 2010 and 2013 recipient of the Kenan-Biddle Partnership grant, our chapter has developed a strong relationship with our sister chapter, GlobeMed at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and have jointly hosted a number of public events on both of our campuses. Since 2010, our chapter has raised nearly $30,000 for Salud sin LĂ­mites.


Our Partnership Salud Sin LimĂ­tes Founded in 1984 Salud Sin Limites / Health Poverty Action is a British international organization that has been working in Nicaragua since 1993. The Siuna chapter is entirely operated by people from the Siuna community. Their mission is to provide access to healthcare and health education to historically marginalized indigenous communities, especially women, adolescents and children. They accomplish this through capacitation and construction projects in connection with other organizations, educational programs with adolescents, and radio programming. GlobeMed at Duke joined Salud sin Limites in the fall of 2010.

Siuna, Nicaragua Population: 100,770 Siuna and La RAAN (The North Atlantic Autonomous Region) in general have the highest rates of domestic violence in Nicaragua. Recently, the national government passed Law 779, which severely punishes all forms of domestic violence. Unfortunately, the law is not always enforced in many parts of Nicaragua including in Siuna. El Centro de Atencion Psicosocial is crucial in ensuring the enforcement of the law and has threatened legal action against law enforcement who refuse to uphold 779.

60% of women in Nicaragua have experienced some form of domestic violence.


Our Project We are funding and supporting El Centro de Atencion Psicosocial (CAP), which is a shelter for victims of intrafamiliar violence in Siuna, Nicaragua.

BY THE NUMBERS: Over 100 women and children have passed through the shelter since its inauguration in March, 2014. What we directly funded:

The money has funded beds, cement, fencing, sinks, toilets, and a roof for the shelter, as well as other materials for the renovation.

El Centro de Atencion Psicosocial is run by the Commission for Women, Children, Adolescents, and Disabled Individuals. GlobeMed at Duke has been funding the construction, renovation, and upkeep of the shelter for the past 2 years, and will continue to do so until all renovations are complete. Since its inauguration in March, 2014, the shelter has helped more than 20 women resolve their cases, allowing them to return to their children and their homes.

Cozy for a Cause Campaign date: November 7, 2013 Students enjoyed student performances while sipping autumn-themed beverages and enjoying gourmet cupcakes from Sugarland Bakery of Chapel Hill. GlobeMed raised money through the sale of the drinks, cupcakes, knit hats, handmade GlobeMed t-shirts and a raffle of giftcards to local restaurants.

Balloongrams Campaign date: February 10 - 14, 2014 GlobeMed staff members sold balloons during the week of Valentine's Day. Duke students wrote a note to their sweetheart or friends and chose what kind of balloon they wanted to send. On Valentine's Day, GlobeMed staff delivered the balloons and love notes to their designated dorm room. Over 300 balloons were sold to Dukie lovebirds!


Community Building Through service and team-building events, community and camaraderie is fostered around global health and social justice within GlobeMed chapters, the GlobeMed network and surrounding communities.

Total number of chapter members in 2013 – 2014: 40 Number of community-building events: 6 Number of hours volunteered in the community: 35 Community Building at Duke has moved forward with bright new ideas in community partnerships and has ignited new social flares. We bonded with the John Avery Boys and Girls Club of Durham throughout the fall and fed our relationship into a global art communication program we call Paint-Pals. Like pen-pals, the program provides lower-income students of Durham and students of Siuna, Nicaragua with the opportunity to communicate through their artistic depiction of the word "community." Simultaneously, we have begun to build a relationship with the Durham Crisis Response Center (DCRC), a provider of comprehensive shelter and support services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Our hope is not only to professionally serve DCRC in meaningful projects, but also to give our chapter members an international comparative experience on domestic violence.


globalhealthU globalhealthU is GlobeMed’s signature year-long global health curriculum. This student-designed and driven program equips students with the critical thinking skills that will inform a life of leadership for global health. This year, our globalhealthU sessions touched on important topics in global health, such as mental health and female genital mutilation. GlobeMed members gave presentations and led insightful discussions, making globalhealthU one of the biggest draws for students interested in GlobeMed. Most importantly, globalhealthU was an opportunity to better understand our own community, our partner community, and the health issues we both face, helping us as students better serve the people of these communities.


Duke FACE AIDS's Condom Couture Event date: April 22, 2014 GlobeMed at Duke participated in the Condom Couture event, organized by a fellow student organization, Duke FACE AIDS, to reduce the stigma against HIV/AIDS and encourage safe sex practices. Students made garments out of condoms and modeled them in a fashion show.

Duke Global Health Week Event date: April 1-7, 2014 Organized by the Duke Partnership for Service, Global Health Week brings together student organizations focusing on service. GlobeMed at Duke contributed an interactive, educational display on the incidences of domestic violence and cervical cancer in women around the world.

GROW Internship Grassroots Onsite Work Through Grassroots On-site Work (GROW) internships, students build capacity of their partner organization, engage in mutual learning, and ensure long-term stability of their partnership. This summer, we implemented four main projects in Siuna, Nicaragua: a radio program promoting HIV and domestic violence awareness, a painting exchange program with children here and in Durham, a photo program Nuevas Perspectivas, and a documentary illustrating the causes of domestic violence in Siuna and what work can be done to prevent it.

“As I leave GROW I feel confident in the future of our relationship with CAP Siuna, immense respect for the incredible dedications that our partners have for their cause, and excited for future years of working and growing together."– Christina Schmidt, 2017


Our Future GlobeMed at Duke University Dear Friends, GlobeMed at Duke truly took off this year. We were powered by a dynamic executive board and the largest and most dedicated staff we’ve ever had. We emerged as one of the best global health student groups on campus and look forward to carrying on that momentum in the year to come. We will continue supporting the domestic violence shelter in Siuna to ensure that the remaining renovations are completed and to provide seed money to launch a small business to help make the shelter become economically selfsustainable. This summer our GROW team worked on strengthening our relationship with our partner in Siuna and we are looking forward to even better communication and collaboration this coming year. We are also looking forward to developing a relationship with the Durham Crisis Response Centera center for victims of domestic violence right here in our own community. Our members will have the opportunity to get more involved in the Durham and serve in a variety of ways. On campus, we are looking forward to increasing our chapter membership capacity and diversity. A bigger chapter means bigger impact. We hope to broaden the focus of campaigns to include more advocacy-based activities and to collaborate more with other student groups on campus. Finally, we are eager to put together an advisory board Through my work with consisting of Duke faculty and staff.
