ANNUAL REPORT 2011-2012
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 UCLA
Dear friends and supporters, This year has been truly remarkable. It has been an honor to lead and serve the amazing group of global citizens that comprised GlobeMed at UCLA this year. After raising $3,500 last year, GlobeMed at UCLA heightened its goal this year to $6,000, to support the Sexual Health Education, Outreach, and Intervention project with the Nwoya Youth Center. Despite the anxiety that this lofty new goal caused, the incredible staff and executive board did not waver in their resolve to meet it. And not only did we meet it, we absolutely eclipsed it. We are proud to say that this year, GlobeMed at UCLA was able to raise over $15,000 to support our work in partnership with the NYC. This achievement would not have been possible without your efforts. Whether you supported us through our campaigns (Global Get Down, Achy Breaky Heart, Hunger Games), or donated to us during our hugely successful GlobalGiving effort, we are immensely grateful for everything that you do. Without you, our partnership with the NYC would be impossible, and the capacity for the NYC to do its immensely important work in northern Uganda would be significantly reduced. We extend to you our deepest gratitude. Although it made us happy to witness the amazing fundraising efforts of our chapter, we can say that our true pleasure came from the countless moments of laughter and joy that we shared with our chapter, the rest of the GlobeMed network, and our partner community in Uganda. It’s these shared moments of friendship and humanity that remind us why we do this work.

Fall Staﬀ Retreat
Give Thanks with GlobeMed
The members of GlobeMed at UCLA packed up sleeping bags and s’mores and headed out to the beautiful landscape of Malibu Creek State Park for a night of fun and bonding together. Nothing creates more friendships than putting up tents and then snuggling in them!
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, GlobeMed at UCLA set up a station on Bruin Plaza and asked people to share what they are thankful for. It’s so important not to take our lives for granted, and to work towards making it so that everyone has things to be thankful for!
GlobeMed at UCLA’s members had a blast during the team on team scavenger hunt across campus organized by the Community Building team. Campaigns, globalhealthU, Communications, Publicity, and Finances let their competitive nature run free as they formed a bond within teams.

GROW Team Departs
With the excitement surrounding the Hunger Games book & movie, GlobeMed at UCLA hosted our own version of this in the form of a coloredwater balloon fight, to the death ... kidding. GlobeMed's members and the participating teams had a fantastic time enjoying the beautiful LA weather during the games.
GlobeMed at UCLA celebrated the end of the year and all the successes that we had throughout the year by going out for a sushi dinner together. We sent the seniors off with love and gifts, and had a great time enjoying each others' company.
The long awaited date finally arrived and the four members of our GROW Team departed, leaviing California for their 6 week stay in our partner community Anaka in Northern Uganda working with the Nwoya Youth Center.
In order to have a permanent page on the GlobalGiving website and be able to reach a new audience, GlobeMed at UCLA's members reached out to friends and family to raise the necessary $4,000. We had been nervous, but ended up surpassing that goal together!

GlobeMed at UCLA
In 2008, a UCLA student interested in learning more about healthcare on both a domestic and international level ventured into the UCLA Career Center. She discovered the organization GlobeMed, but a chapter did not yet exist on UCLAâ€™s campus, so she founded GlobeMed at UCLA in 2008. UCLA was re-partnered in 2009 with the Amuru Youth Center in northern Uganda, which has since been renamed the Nwoya Youth Center. The first GROW trip took place in the summer of 2010, and a beautiful partnership had begun. There have now been three GROW trips to our partner in Anaka, Uganda, which goes side by side with a continuously growing chapter at UCLA, with 35 involved students who are insatiably interested in learning about their partner and global health, as well as sharing this knowledge with their peers through events on campus.
since our founding in april 2007 , our chapter has grown from 03 to 35 members.
Nwoya Youth Center WORKS IN ANAKA, UGANDA POPULATION: 41,010
KEY FACT: HIV/AIDS prevalence: 6.7% (increased from 6.4%)
Anaka is a small village on the main highway between Gulu and Pakwach, in one of Uganda’s newest districts, Nwoya District, which was previously part of the Amuru District. The head of the medicine and health service delivery monitoring unit at State House, Diana Atwine, has described Nwoya district as a museum of corruption. The Anaka hospital is no exception to this unfortunate reality. Built in the 1950s by the British, it was soon abandoned and left for ruins. It is currently in shambles and extremely understaffed, offering very limited and poor quality health care to local people, who have no other options. In the midst of corruption, the strength of the people is inspiring. As part of northern Uganda, the Nwoya district has suffered from the tragic effects of war. The war in northern Uganda has been called “the most neglected humanitarian emergency in the world today”. For the past 23 years, the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and the Government of Uganda (GoU) have been waging a war that has affected nearly two million innocent civilians. After an immeasurable amount of human rights violations and thousands of children abducted and forced to serve in the LRA army, the region is struggling to recover with very little help from the Ugandan government, but many people are making great strives to do so.
ANNUAL REPORT 2011-2012
ABOUT NWOYA YOUTH CENTER FOUNDED IN 2009 The Nwoya Youth Center (NYC) was established in 2009 as part of the Straight Talk Foundation (STF), a communications NGO in Uganda that provides youth with accurate sexual health information and resources. NYC is one of 5 youth centers created as part of STF’s Face-to-Face program to reach youth affected by war in Northern Uganda. GlobeMed at UCLA began our partnership with the Nwoya Youth Center in 2009. NYC’s goal is to contribute to the prevention of new HIV infections in adolescents, reducing the infection rate by 20% in the Nwoya District. Their objectives are to increase knowledge of STI/HIV/AIDS and unwanted pregnancies and to increase adoption of safer sex practices in adolescents. NYC’s work involves the entire community and includes weekly dialogues with young men, young women, teachers, parents, young mothers, and young positives. They conduct monthly testing and referral days with the local hospital and make frequent visits to surrounding schools and villages.
OUR PROJECT Nwoya Youth Center
GlobeMed at UCLA Why communicable disease prevention? Uganda's population is one of two African countries that has increasing rates of HIV. By providing sexual reproductive health education, we hope to provide youth with knowledge that will help them make informed decisions on sexual behavior. These programs will allow youth to know more about the processes and consequences of sex and about combatting sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV. Because Anaka is largely isolated from larger towns, the the Nwoya Youth Center offers the community resources that they would not otherwise have.
5,000 YOUTH WILL RECEIVE SENSITIZATIONS AT THEIR SCHOOL
$7,100 TO FUND SANITARY PAD MATERIALS, CONDOMS, SPORT EQUIPMENT, FUEL, COMMUNICATION, REFRESHMENTS, STATIONARIES
GlobeMed at UCLA aims to raise $6,000+ to fund sexual reproductive health programs for youth in Anaka, Uganda." This year, GlobeMed at UCLA is supporting six sexual reproductive health programs at the Nwoya Youth Center in Anaka, Uganda. Programs include Gender Structured Boy/Girl Talk, Sexual Reproductive Health Outreach to Schools, Sports and Games, Condom Awareness Sessions, Outreach to Young Positives and Persons with Disabilities, and a Sanitary Pad Distribution. These projects will affect 1000 youth in the community by offering them knowledge relating to sexual reproductive health. These resources aim to increase young peoples' utilization of HIV prevention and other ASRH services, to increase adoption of safer sex practices, and to increase access to information and services for special needs groups in the district.
Campaigns are on-campus events and initiatives that raise funds for GlobeMed partner organizations' grassroots projects abroad.

CAMPAIGNS HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE YEAR
Achy Breaky Heart February 14th 2012 The weekend of Valentines Day our chapter joined forces with Bruins for Israel to throw a valentines extravaganza. At the event we had carnival games and raffled off dates for Valentineâ€™s Day, many of them BFI or GlobeMed members! During the event we got the opportunity to present about our GROW Trip and partner in Anaka, as well as hear a about Save a Child's Heart, the organization that BFI was working to benefit. The event gathered a great crowd from many facets of campus life and has been one of our most successful events to date!
Global Get Down February 22, 2012 This year GlobeMed at UCLA hosted our 3rd Annual Global Get Down! In partnership with the Office of Residential Life (ORL). We were lucky to have some amazing talent from among our peers at UCLA perform in this talent show. A Cappella groups, hip hop groups, Indian dance performance, and bands performed for an audience who donated to the Nwoya Youth Center in order to vote for their favorite performers. Members of the Invisible Children chapter at UCLA came to speak to the audience during the intermission about the situation in Northern Uganda.
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.
It was an incredible privilege to serve as globalhealthU Coordinators this past year. Our curriculum entitled “Global Health Education and Leadership Development” not only provided a thorough understanding of the current issues in global health, but also our role as students in the movement for global health equity. Throughout the year we examined the cyclic relationship between poverty and poor health and how best to intervene. One of our most memorable sessions was the 1st Annual globalhealthU Debate, where chapter members represented the views of six leading economists and debated the different approaches to alleviating poverty in developing nations. We also conducted an in-depth investigation on the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Uganda to better understand the needs of our partner community in Anaka. The passion that these discussions drew from students was beyond inspiring. It only reminds us that globalhealthU is an invaluable program that provides students with the fundamental education we need to become leading global health professionals.

globalhealthU ON-CAMPUS EVENTS
Give Thanks with GlobeMed November 22, 2011
In honor of Thanksgiving, GlobeMed at UCLA challenged fellow students to answer the question “What are you thankful for?” and consider the impact sanitary pads and condoms have on lives of those living in poverty and at risk of HIV. This event introduced our Sexual Health Intervention, Education, and Outreach Project. Chapter members explained the importance of preventative sexual health measures in reducing the incidence of HIV and wore shirts bearing startling statistics about the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Uganda to date.
Global Health Awareness Week Gala March 22, 2012
"The gala event gave me a glimpse of how I envision the GlobeMed network growing as we become professionals. Networking with people ten and twenty years older than us who have already made so many impressive accomplishments in global health was truly inspiring and affirmed the work we do.” --Catherine Ni, c/o 2012
The GHAW Gala Dinner, sponsored by the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, Global Health Review, and UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, brought together healthcare professionals and students. Chapter members engaged in discussion about the importance of grassroots sustainable interventions versus short-term solutions to alleviating global health inequity. Keynote speaker, Richard Blum, founder of the Blum Center for Developing Economies, emphasized the importance of education in preventing youth from lives of poverty and resonated deeply with GlobeMed at UCLA’s project goals.
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.

35 # OF COMMUNITY BUILDING EVENTS: 21 TOTAL # OF CHAPTER MEMBERS:
# OF HOURS VOLUNTEERED WITH UNION RESCUE MISSION IN LA:
Community service at a local homeless shelter, Union Rescue Mission, gave our chapter a look at the disparities in our own backyard. The Fall retreat was our first ever overnight retreat, and we camped for a night at Malibu Creek State Park. The Spring retreat was a fun hike along with cliff jumping, for those brave enough to participate. They were both successful events for bringing the attendees closer together through fun as well as thoughtful activities, and doing something together away from UCLA. We have a wellbonded staff, having had regularly planned and notso-planned fun and casual socials open to everyone, it is evident that people have grown to truly care about each other, in and out of GlobeMed happenings.

“The dedication and drive of this partnership is something greater than what can be put into a few words. The GROW trip allowed me to truly understand the importance of our partnership and the changes that can be made when working-hands and passionate hearts are put together. ” -- Brittney Sutton, c/o 2014
04 LENGTH OF STAY: 06 weeks # OF GROW INTERNS:
JUNE 2012 – AUGUST 2012
WORK DESCRIPTION: This year's GROW interns will help develop monitoring and evaluation tools for ongoing sexual reproductive health education, outreach, and intervention projects at the Nwoya Youth Center. This will include discussing and drafting surveys with the partner organization that will be used to survey participants of the programs run by NYC and supported by GlobeMed at UCLA. Interns will also collaborate with NYC to develop a sanitary pad distribution program for girls in the Nwoya community. This program aims to increase access to valuable resources, reduce stigma around menstruation, and increase overall school attendance of girls in the community.
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.
â€œINJUSTICE anywhere is a THREAT to JUSTICE everywhere.â€? MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
GLOBEMED AT UCLA joined 45 other GlobeMed chapters across the nation in a network-wide 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: Hearing the perspective of how a variety of fields relate to social justice directly from professors at UCLA who we look up to for various reasons, was such a fantastic experience for those of us already interested in global health and hopefully it got everyone else starting to think about those connections. Thinking about the connection between the stigma associated with mental health and how it is directly related to global health was new to many, that from an economist's perspective the most important thing for society to expend its scarce resources towards are preventative aspects of global health was refreshing, and hearing about the importance of how literacy could improve the health of so many by giving them agency in their own lives was empowering.

“I don’t think I fully understood, nor recognized the importance of the organization to my life until my time spent at Summit. The students from across the nation within the network are some of the most inspiring individuals I have ever met, and the conversations we had reminded me that I am already making a difference by learning about and being conscious of the social injustices around the world.”

2012 GLOBAL HEALTH SUMMIT
-- Mykenzie Mattheis, c/o 2014
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 "I'm so thankful that GlobeMed opened me up to the fight for global health equity and I'm constantly motivated by my peers who are so talented and so passionate about making the world a better place, one partner organization at a time. The future is bright for GlobeMed and I'm so excited to witness it!” – Mizuki Sato, c/o 2012
GlobeMed at UCLA is heading into its fifth year looking forward to strengthening our partnership and reflecting on our core values. One of our major goals for the year is to strengthen our partnership by incorporating our partner’s voice and mission into all of our activities. We want all chapter members to feel connected to the Nwoya Youth Center, the Anaka community, and our project work so that we can all better understand the impact of partnership and grassroots programming. Every week we plan to have GROW presentations where GROW interns from this summer present an aspect of their experience back to the chapter; this will include game tournaments, food presentations, and dance demonstrations! In addition to increasing awareness within our chapter, we want to expand our reach and knowledge throughout our campus. We hope to increase our campus presence by maintaining continuous branding that will help identify us as an organization on campus and by putting on more public ghU events. We are looking to partner with organizations on campus that have a similar focus and mission as us to put on events that highlight Ugandan history/culture, social awareness, or global health knowledge. This way, we can reach a broader audience on campus, partner with organizations similar to ours, and project our information on a more informed and interested group. Another big goal this year is to focus on discernment, to reflect on our reasons for being in GlobeMed and our reasons for engaging in global health equity. We are going to try and understand and shape our beliefs on health through more involved ghU discussions and activities that really question the core of why we do this work. By doing so, we’ll be able to better understand our commitment to GlobeMed and our aspirations for the future.
