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.

Health for all is within our grasp, but we can only achieve it by working together.


PRESIDENTS’ MESSAGE GlobeMed at University of Virginia

Dear Friends of GlobeMed at UVa, It has been an honor and great pleasure to work with the amazing group of individuals that comprises GlobeMed at UVA. In just our first year, we’ve formed an unwavering partnership and felt an incredible feeling of unity in purpose transcending our entire chapter and our family of supporters. After our inaugural GROW Trip this past June, we have been able to form a relationship with our partner organization in Siem Reap, Cambodia, the Build Your Future Today Center. This connection has made the idea of empowering a community halfway across the world a tangible undertaking that will undoubtedly be continued and strengthened in the future. But it was the dedication and commitment of our members that has made this first year a true success. Their efforts have raised over $4,500 for our partner and have expanded our reach throughout the UVA and Charlottesville communities. This report summarizes our work and the generous donations from our supporters in numbers and pictures, but it is our hope that readers will also see the passion and joy that encompasses GlobeMed at UVA. Our proudest moments as Co-Presidents occurred when we were able to step back to listen to the insightful debates, see the glimmer of enthusiasm, and feel the pure energy derived from our members. With this energy, we built a diverse family bound by solidarity and a commitment to social justice. Our experiences have provided each of us with the leadership skills and the drive to advocate for health and to celebrate the beauty of human life. We thank you for your support and we look forward to working with you in the future to continue to strive for action and dialogue in the movement for global health equity. In Solidarity, Parth Shah & Surabhi Bhatt 2011-2012 Co-Presidents

Depart for Grow

The bar night turned out to be one of our favorite events, as we bonded while selling wristbands for drink specials at the Biltmore Bar and Grill. We look forward to hosting more next year!

Our globalhealthU team spearheaded a workshop on the topic of Global Malnutrition and the Cycle of Poverty at the annual Pursuit Conference - a forum that brings students together to increasing social awareness and activism.

Our first GROW trip departed for Siem Reap, Cambodia. Six members of our team worked to monitor our project through BMI analysis, helped our partner in making a newsletter, and blogged to share our partner community's stories among other things.

At the International Night hosted by first and second year council, we recruited and spread awareness of our cause by passing out materials and chatting with attendees. We got a great response and met a lot of prospective members!


GlobeMed at University of Virginia

ABOUT US

In 2011, a student interested in public health and children's rights applied to begin a GlobeMed chapter at UVA in response to emails from the GlobeMed national office. After recognition on campus and partnering of UVA's chapter with the Build Your Future Today Center in August, the student and a friend began forming the organization and recruiting additional members. Since August 2012, 26 chapter members have raised over $4,500 in funds for maternal and child education and health projects in 3 villages in the Siem Reap province of Cambodia. 6 GROW interns strengthened the partnership between GlobeMed at UVA and the Build Your Future Today Center through a 5 week internship in June 2012.

since our founding in september 2011 , our chapter has grown from 11 to 26 members.


Build Your Future Today Center WORKS IN SIEM REAP PROVINCE, CAMBODIA POPULATION: 896,309 Cambodia was devastated by genocidal atrocities committed in the Khmer Rouge regime during the years of 1975-1979. Some estimate that almost 4 million people were killed during this regime. In the period of 1979-1992, there were constant power struggles and conflicts between the Khmer, the Liberation Army, and the Vietnamese invaders. In 1992, Cambodia had it's first UN sponsored election; however, the election was not free of conflict. Although there has been political stability, lack of resources has limited the growth of the rural areas. The country has faced an uphill economic and health battle in the face of a decimated population. The Siem Reap province is located in Northwestern Cambodia, approximately 250km from the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. Rural KEY FACT: One in 11 villages, especially in the Siem Reap province, struggle to sustain children does not live to adequate incomes and food production. Due to UNESCO World heritage restrictions placed around the Angkor Wat Temple complex, most families see age 5. have no access to enough land to support their family's nutrition needs. KEY FACT: An estimated Due to high levels of government corruption, there is very limited aid 64% of Cambodia’s total available for the villages. Limited access to clinics or healthcare have led to high infant and maternal mortality rates. Although there are free-ofpopulation would test charge clinics available for all children in Siem Reap town, most families in positive for TB. the nearby districts are unable to pay or have no access to transportation

OUR PARTNER

ABOUT BUILD YOUR FUTURE TODAY CENTER FOUNDED IN 2006 Worried by the horrific atrocities commited in the Khmer Rouge regime, Professor Sedtha Long established The Build Your Future Today Center (BFT) in 2006 with international support. Sedtha’s life is an inspiration, demonstrating determination and care for his fellow people. He experienced suffering and hardship during the Khmer Rouge regime in addition to the 12 years he spent as a refugee in the Cambodia-Thai border camps. The Build Your Future Today Center (BFT) aims to provide opportunites for people who have been living through hardships and poverty with effective solutions to improve their lives. It has become the ultimate aim to successfully establish well-being, prosperity and peace for the people of Cambodia. The center's work includes community education development, a child support center, community health/nutrition development, community peace building, and community capacity building and livelihood improvement.


A MESSAGE FROM OUR PARTNER Build Your Future Today Center Dear Valued Friends & Compassionate Donors, As the founder and director of Build Your Future Today Center (BFT), I would like you to know how pleased we are that some of you have had the opportunity to visit Siem Reap and to spend time with us. And sincere appreciations and congratulations to our Partner from GlobeMed at UVA Grow Team - Parth Shah, Surabhi Bhatt, David Vaamonde, Summer Hien Nguyen, Jennifer Mueller and Elizabeth Knipp for spending their valued time of five weeks working very enthusiastically to help the community in Siem Reap-Cambodia. During these past months there has been a great deal of communication between BFT and the GlobeMed especially our partner group from GlobeMed at the University of Virginia; we have shared the mission “to stop the cycle of malnutrition in mothers and young children and to promote early childhood education among the pre-school children”. In the spirit of close cooperation, we have put together this aim into action. Since early 2012 our partner from GlobeMed at UVA and BFT in Siem Reap-Cambodia have joined together to work tirelessly, shoulder to shoulder. Together we work to provide the opportunity for people and children in need, who have been living unhealthy and malnourished, with effective solutions to improve their risks. This includes a provision of daily nutritious food feeding, clean water, hygiene/sanitation, health education and care, basic education and so on. In results, until now there are many hundreds of children and mothers in Arak Svay, Trach Chrum and Kok Yieng villages in Nokor Thom and Ampil whose lives have been improved and changed from receiving services at the Community-based Safe Mother and Child Centers. I would also like to share my gratitude to all donors, for your compassionate and sympathetic support and love. Your effort to reach out and help others is why the partnership of GlobeMed and BFT is known and trusted as a group of loving and serving individuals, offering needed help. Before my conclusion, In the name of Cambodian poor people and children, I am pleased to hear the expansion of more services of “A Community-Based Safe Mother and Child Center” s in more districts as well as my appeal to all generous people to participate in these efforts of to work more closely together to build hope, peace and a better future for our younger generation. Prof. Sedtha Long, Founder & Director Build Your Future Today Center (BFT)


Build Your Future Today Center

GlobeMed at University of Virginia Why women’s health and nutrition? True to the GlobeMed model, the first conversations focused on listening to the needs of our partner community. As the mothers expressed dire concern over the health and education of their children, we decided to embark on the Safe Child and Mother Care project. Due to extremely high levels of illiteracy, child malnutrition, and unsafe practices, BFT and GlobeMed at UVA are focusing on programs that will provide critically needed nutrition alongside preschool education efforts and maternal health classes.

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.

Coming in as a brand new chapter of the GlobeMed community, in it was not clear what the role of globalhealthU was to start. No one expected GHU to be a source of funds, nor did anyone expect it to help a partnership thousands of miles away. Most saw it as a lecture of some point, merely to help us gain a better grasp of what we were dealing with. However, as the year progressed, it gradually began to dawn on us the true purpose of ghU. How can one even begin advocating for health as a human right without understand what health really is? How can an organization form a partnership with another without having a grasp of what a partnership truly entails? All of these questions and more were answered once our chapter started the globalhealthU track. ghU by the end of the year, transformed our view of the world. Debates on economic theories helped us to gain an understanding of different perspectives. Activities on malnutrition helped to realize the true gravity of the issue. And understanding what partnership truly meant, helped us to reach out to our friends on the other side of the planet. globalhealthU became not only a foundation of our chapter’s growth, but each and every individual’s growth, as all of us opened our eyes to the world that GlobeMed has helped us to see. globalhealthU is one of the things that makes GlobeMed what it is. It’s the understanding of what we’re getting ourselves into, what we’re doing all of this for… it’s the understanding of how to be the change that we want to see. - Steve Qian, globalhealthU Coordinator, c/o 2015

2011-2012 CURRICULUM ORIENTATION 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.


ON-CAMPUS EVENTS

What's On Your Plate?: A Hunger Banquet April 5, 2012 Forty guests were randomly assigned to different income levels based on the number of people living in poverty. Depending on where they sit, some 15% of guests enjoyed an extravagant meal, 35% consumed a simple meal, and 50% were given the bare minimum. This activity highlighted the large economic disparities that people face internationally as well as prompted discussion between different income levels.

ghU through Jelly Beans April 2, 2012 During a ghU discussion at our staff meeting, four groups were each given a limited demographic profile of a country in the following regions of the world: Africa, Asia, South America, and North America. Using the given information and any previous knowledge, jelly beans were used to estimate the number of children suffering from malnutrition. The results were surprising and fascinating.

GROW INTERNSHIP

"Working with a grassroots organization really is the most effective way to combat public health issues by beginning at the source. Cultural immersion, observation, and integration on the local scale do not allow Western bias to get in the way, and participatory research allows for a solid partnership to form, guided by locals with a vision of change.” -- Jen Mueller, c/o 2014

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.


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

GLOBEMED AT UNVIERSITY OF VIRGINIA 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.

Number of professors who participated in the WDSJ Teach-In:

02

Participating Departments: Sociology

Astronomy GLOBEMED TEACH-IN HIGHLIGHTS: Links between the fields of sociology, astronomy, and social justice were highlighted during the teach-in celebrating World Day of Social Justice. Professors highlighted minority and gender disparities in fields of higher education, the lack of a child's voice in his/her fight for rights, the inadequate access to our growing knowledge pool by those in poverty around the world, and the increasing economic pressures placed on developing countries by those more developed. MORE WDSJ ACTION ----------------------------------”EVERYONE DESERVES _______": During study breaks at Clemons library, GlobeMed staff members went around the library asking students to draw/write/express how they would complete the statement "Everyone deserves ______". We hoped to provoke discussion and thought on universal rights and needs.

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.

2011 GLOBAL HEALTH SUMMIT

2012 DELEGATES: Surabhi Bhatt, Leah Caudell-Feagan, Farah Shah, Parth Shah, Steve Qian

“The 2012 Global Health Summit was my first time learning how powerful GlobeMed was as an organization. Being in the same room as hundreds of other people that all shared the same social justice and health equity values made me realize how a small group of devoted people can make a big difference. This is not an organization driven by monetary goals, or one that simply sends money abroad in the name of philanthropy. This is an organization that believes in working with their partner and learning from them so that they can both grow together.�

-- Farah Shah, c/0 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.


“I happened upon GlobeMed serendipitously in the summer before my fourth year. Being on the first executive board of GlobeMed at UVA was one of my most rewarding and unique university experiences. This group is highly motivated and passionate, and I look forward to following its continued success for years to come.” – Amanda Surber, c/o 2012

ANNUAL REPORT 2011-2012

OUR FUTURE

The future of GlobeMed at UVa is promising and we cannot be more excited to see where it takes us. At the end of our first year, staff and executive board members came together to discuss our strengths, weaknesses, and improvements as well as what we wanted to accomplish in the future. Within our chapter, we hope to bring members even closer together. We are looking forward to building upon last year’s friendships and continuing to learn from each other. Alongside this, we also hope that each chapter member continues to develop a personal understanding and connection with our partnership with the Build Your Future Today Center during this time of growth. Working among such a large University community can be challenging, but will continue to establish ourselves as we aim to increase our recognition on Grounds. We hope to work with other student organizations who have similar goals in order to increase the impact of creating positive sustainable change. We are blessed to be a part of the unique community of Charlottesville and we cannot wait to work with more of the community members, small businesses, and non-profit organizations. In summer 2012, our six Grow interns also went through an extensive reflection process to evaluate our partnership and see where it will go in the future. They have returned with a plan to expand the nutrition and maternal health project into the Sray Ra Bong village. In addition, we look forward to forging relationships that will allow us to form a strong alumni base and become one of the leading public health organizations on campus. We would like to thank everyone for their support thus far and we hope you continue to follow us at globemedatuva.org.
