2013 – 2016 Strategic Plan


The Need

Our Approach

Today, millions of people in poverty continue to suffer and die from preventable causes. It doesn’t have to be this way. For the first time in human history, we have the tools and resources to close the health gap, if we work together.

We use three strategies to strengthen the movement for global health equity. Through this approach, GlobeMed supports community health today and fosters the global health leadership and collaboration needed for tomorrow.

To achieve health equity, we need a movement of people collaborating across borders, sectors and generations to tackle challenges and develop solutions. Together, we can create the change needed at every level, from communities to global systems, to give all people the chance to live a healthy life.

A Movement for Health Today and and Health Tomorrow

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.


How It Works

Our Network

We partner each university chapter with one grassroots organization leading change in its community. Year after year, students support the organization’s work through fundraising, research, and volunteering while developing their skills as future leaders for global health.

Our Impact Since 2007, our students and partner organizations have raised over one million dollars to implement 207 health projects around the world. By 2016, we will graduate over 2,000 alumni.
