OUR 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.

�

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.


PRESIDENTS’ MESSAGE GlobeMed at Truman State University

Friends of GlobeMed at Truman State, We would like to thank you with all of our 63 hearts for your support this year in helping our organization flourish and our partnership deepen. We are so blessed to share our successes with you and are honored to be playing a part in the remarkable successes Maison de Naissance achieves in rural southwestern Haiti each year. It has been a privilege to serve as a liaison between our communities.

IN THIS REPORT:

The success of our partnership can in part be measured by our huge fundraising success this year. We set our goals high, and surpassed them raising more than $10,000. This could not have been possible without the enormous enthusiasm and dedication of our members and the encouragement and support from our family and friends in our commitment to the mothers and babies and staff at MN. It is because of this incredible outpouring of love that we were able to purchase ship and install 48 new batteries to store solar energy and guarantee that the clinic runs twenty four hours every day, rain or shine.

ABOUT US

Finally, the growth of our organization and the strengthening of our partnership is realized through our very first Grassroots On-site Work (GROW) trip that took place this May. For the first time in our five year partnership, six of our staff members spent twelve days in Haiti helping MN implement a community health and needs assessment survey. The personal connections formed between our members and the MN community during this internship will serve as a cornerstone for our work in the future and ensure new, unimaginable achievements together. Thank you friends, families, professors and peers at Truman State, and our colleagues at Maison de Naissance. In Solidarity, Summer Jensen and Betsy Koehne 2011-2012 Co-Presidents

GlobeMed at Truman State University

ABOUT US

In 2006, two Truman students visited rural Haiti with a local NGO, Maison de Naissance, to help complete work on several community-based health projects. They returned to Truman eager to find a way to continue supporting Maison de Naissance's efforts to improve the health of mothers and babies and founded the GlobeMed chapter at Truman State. Since then, our chapter has grown from ten to over sixty staff members and has raised over $37,000 to fund projects for MN such as bringing sustainable energy to the clinic with a solar-powered battery pack and inverter, creating educational materials for the midwifery staff and community health workers and supplying the clinic with much needed medical supplies.

since our founding in august 2006 , our chapter has grown from 10 to 63 members.


[Maison de Naissance] WORKS IN LARNAGE, HAITI POPULATION: 10,000

KEY FACT: One in every 16 women in Haiti will die during childbirth.

Haiti has been continually plagued by imperialism, civil war, government corruption, economic turmoil and natural disasters for much of its history. Maison de Naissance, located in rural Southwestern Haiti, serves the rural and uneducated poor who do not have access to sufficient medical care. Maison de Naissance strives to correct poor maternal health practices like giving birth at home and unattended. In recent years, Haiti has been afflicted by food shortages, hurricanes and a devastating earthquake. Maison de Naissance has faithfully served the Haitian people so adversely affected by these disasters.

KEY FACT: One in 12 babies will die before their first birthday.

ABOUT MAISON DE NAISSANCE FOUNDED IN 2004 The Maison de Naissance Foundation is a non-profit maternal health organization based in Leawood, Kansas. In 2004, the foundation established a birthing center in Larnage, Haiti called Maison de Naissance, meaning "house of birth" in French. Haiti is home to the highest infant and maternal mortality rates in the Western Hemisphere. By offering the services of a modern maternity center, impoverished women and children in rural southwestern Haiti now have access to the care they need through a culturally appropriate and friendly birthing home. Maison de Naissance has managed to drop the neonatal mortality rate in the area by possibly 75%, without the loss of a single mother, and currently employs over thirty Haitian staff members. GlobeMed at Truman State initiated a strong partnership with Maison de Naissance in Fall 2006.

OUR PARTNER


&

OUR PROJECT Maison de Naissance

GlobeMed at Truman State University Why capacity building? Haiti suffers from a shortage of infrastructure, but thrives on a surplus of sunshine. Our project focuses on meeting the energy needs of the clinic by providing MN with the tools to harness and store the sun's energy in order to power the clinic through the night and through Haiti's countless natural disasters. Our project will enable MN to deliver healthy babies all night long.

1,000 WOMEN WILL BE POSITIVELY

IMPACTED EACH YEAR.

$10,000 TO PURCHASE,

SHIP,

AND INSTALL 48 BATTERIES TO POWER 1 CLINIC.

Purchase and shipment of 48 battery packs to power MN at night. " This year we raised funds to buy, ship, and install 48 new batteries to store electrical energy collected from the solar panels at the clinic. The current batteries only store enough energy to run the clinic for a few hours in the dark, meaning that the staff uses either a diesel-powered generator or kerosene lamps at night. These 48 newly updated batteries will enable the clinic to run 24/7, and will even be able to last through a day without sunlight in the event of a major storm. These batteries will allow the clinic to run independently of Haiti's shaky infrastructure, ensuring MN's doors stay open all day and night to receive the thousands of women who come to MN for prenatal visits, well woman screenings and to deliver their babies.


Campaigns are on-campus events and initiatives that raise funds for GlobeMed partner organizations' grassroots projects abroad.

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 past year, the Truman State GlobeMed chapter took a new approach to our globalhealthU curriculum by incorporating the globalhealthU track program. This yearlong curriculum focused on the relationship between poverty and health. Our globalhealthU curriculum was broken down into several tracks: an introductory track which helped us bridge the gap between our chapter and our partner, a poverty track consisting of case studies from all over the world including Truman faculty presentations, an economics track focusing on conflicting ideas in economic development and an independent study track focused on maternal health in the U.S. Through the year’s engaging globalhealthU discussions, an open platform was created for our members to learn from one another by listening and sharing their ideas, opinions, and experiences.

2011-2012 CURRICULUM ORIENTATION

ANNUAL REPORT 2011-2012

globalhealthU

Chapter members were equipped with a thorough understanding of the values of GlobeMed and explored their personal values. POVERTY AND HEALTH Chapters conceptualized poverty and sought to explore the connections between global health and poverty. THEORETICAL FRAMEWORKS We considered the views of six developmental economists to explored the root causes and paths out of poverty. INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION Chapters conducted an indepth investigation on a topic of interest. STUDENTS’ ROLE Following a critical discussion of our role in perpetuating poverty, we sought to understand how we can be effective advocates. REFLECTION Chapters reflected on the year behind them both as individuals and in the context of their chapter.

Global Health Action Week

March 26-30, 2012

“Global Health Action Week is a chance for our GlobeMed chapter to really get the word out about what it is we do. This year, more than ever we incorporated events that attracted and involved the entire campus.” -Abby Walker, junior

TSU’s Global Health Action Week brought together our campus community to learn about international health issues, to advocate for global health equity, and to meet our monetary year goal for MN. Highlights of the week include the international health care roundtable, Clinic on the Quad, “Typical Truman Student” Trivia Night, and Haitian Celebration. We partnered with AMSA, the Social Justice Counsel, the Nursing Students Association, and the Dukum Up to engage around 400 campus members.

Haitian Celebration GHAW Final Event The finale to our Global Health Week of Action and one of our most-anticipated events of the year, Haitian Celebration was hugely successful in providing a Haitian beans and rice picnic on campus with Creole music.


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.

I was fortunate to engage in a completely new style of team work. I am so blessed to have been part of such a passionate and diverse team devoted to keeping moms and babies safe and healthy.” --Maxine Brenner, c/o 2012

# OF GROW INTERNS: LENGTH OF STAY:

MAY 10 2012– MAY 22 2012

WORK DESCRIPTION: This year, we sent six GlobeMed members to Maison de Naissance for our first ever GROW trip! A major purpose of the trip was to strengthen our partnership with MN. We were able to tour the birthing home and meet several staff members. In addition, we assisted MN with the implementation of a census survey in their immediate zone of service. Our project included assisting with the formation of census questions, reviewing the census tool with local community health workers, training the CHWs to administer the census, and working with translators to randomly select the houses that would be included in the census. We selected every tenth house in MN’s zone, for a total of 192 homes. We are now working on recording, coding, and analyzing the data that has been collected, with the hopes that MN can use it to better understand and serve its community.  

“Visiting and working at Maison de Naissance was one of the most influential experiences of my undergraduate career. Being able to see how our GlobeMed chapter partners with MN to produce grassroots maternal health interventions that change their rural Haitian community for the better was very empowering. The GROW trip helped me to experience the world through an expanded international framework, showing our group the possibilities of pragmatic partnered solidarity and how to be better members of a world that values global health equity.” -- Emily Davis, c/o 2012

Through Grassroots Onsite Work (GROW) internships, students build capacity of their partner organization, engage in mutual learning, and ensure long-term stability of their partnership.


“INJUSTICE anywhere is a THREAT to JUSTICE everywhere.” MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

GLOBEMED AT TRUMAN STATE UNIVERSITY joined 45 other GlobeMed chapters across the nation in a networkwide commemoration of the 4th Annual World Day of Social Justice during the week of February 20, 2012, by asking professors to dedicate five minutes of class time to a discussion on how poverty and social justice relates to their field of study. GLOBEMED TEACH-IN HIGHLIGHTS: Topics addressed included the connection between poverty and ecological conservation efforts, the importance of establishing sustainable healthcare practices, efforts to preserve indigenous music, and why overprescribing antibiotics is bad for everyone. “Become inspired by problems and become passionate about them and fix them.” - Dr. George Schulte, Biology Department

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed February 20th as World Day of Social Justice in 2007. Observation of WDSJ supports efforts of the international community in poverty eradication, the promotion of full employment and decent work, gender equity and access to social wellbeing and justice for all.

2012 GLOBAL HEALTH SUMMIT

“As always, the Summit was an amazing way to meet the faces of other GlobeMedders from across the network. This year was especially momentous because of the presence of some of our partners from around the world. While the planned sessions were superb as always, my personal highlights of the Summit were casual conversations with fellow undergrads, alumni, and partners. I am continuously amazed at the authentic passion exhibited by everyone associated with the network. Looking forward to many more Summits as an alumnus!�

-- Betsy Koehne, c/o 2012

The annual GlobeMed Global Health Summit brings together university students from across the nation for three days of intensive lectures and workshops with representatives from grassroots global health organizations and a range of experts.


OUR FUTURE “Global health is such an intangible, unwieldy beast that addressing its issues can be overwhelming; finding a place to start seems impossible. GlobeMed provides the education to speak up on some of the most complex issues, the community to share your passion, and the tools to make a difference.” – Nicholas Presley, c/o 2012

We have big dreams. And as we reflect on this incredible year of strength and of partnership we realize the extent to which we have expanded our capacities to effect change on our campus and in Haiti and in our world. We enthusiastically rise to meet the new challenges of a new year. We look forward to reconvening once again on campus with our amazing coalition of student change makers whose strength and determination give hope to the future of our work with MN in Haiti. It is our dream to see the individuals in our chapter question the unquestionable with conviction and humility. We cannot wait to foster this growth and shepherd this incredible passion into intentional and practical action. It is our burning desire to continuously engage our campus in a global discourse around social injustices through the power of human connections. We commit to sharing Maison de Naissance with our campus through our GROW trip experiences this summer in order to pragmatically facilitate new commitments to MN's success in bringing about sustainable changes to healthcare in Haiti. We are so excited to propel this movement forward in the coming year and celebrating in our small yet powerful successes as a chapter and as a network of partners.   Partner with us and join in our movement to promote health equity for mothers and babies in Haiti.
