After our inaugural GROW Trip, we have been able to form a true relationship with our partner organization in Northern Uganda. 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 of our members that has made this year a true success. Their efforts have raised over $3400 for our partner and have expanded our reach throughout the UCLA and Los Angeles 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 unwavering passion and joy that encompasses GlobeMed at UCLA. 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 that will provide 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,!

Ballin’ For A Better World
This was our first chance to really bond as a chapter with exec and general staff members. We were able to get off campus to a nearby park, taking the afternoon to think only about GlobeMed and get to know each other. Activities ranged from fun games to devilʼs advocate skits to personal discernment. !
This was GlobeMed at UCLAʼs second annual basketball tournament. Teams of five signed up to play for the afternoon where they were then placed in a bracket playing until a winner was crowned! We also had a bake sale and raffle running in between games. !
Annual Bruin Speech Contest This esteemed speech contest asks a select number of student groups to speak about what inspires them to do the work that they do. This year, our very own, Meghan Kennedy spoke about her experience on the GROW trip and the impact that GlobeMed is making in communities around the world. !

This was a dodgeball tournament where teams played for tickets to UCLAʼs highly acclaimed Jazz Reggae Festival. Taking place on a beautiful California spring day, participants and spectators could also buy drinks and ice cream and play water pong, while learning about health statistics in Uganda.!
At the end of each quarter, we substitute our normal meeting for a dinner out together in celebration of the quarterʼs success. Our favorite is always the one at the end of the year where we can reflect on all of our accomplishments and take time to honor all of our graduating seniors. !
Our second GROW trip departs for Anaka, Uganda to implement the goat project that was started last year on the GROW trip and has been further developed throughout the year. The four GROW interns will be working with the Amuru Youth center directly to get this project up and running. !
Many of our members attended this conference hosted at UCLA. In a series of discussions, scholars including Paul Farmer examined how Haiti is narrated and presented in the world, and how storytelling affects the country, in general and in the aftermath of the earthquake.!

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. After looking through a list of student organizations, she discovered the Global Medical Relief Program. Upon more research, she found that the former was now GlobeMed, but a chapter did not yet exist on UCLAʼs campus. She then grabbed two friends with equal interests and, together, they founded GlobeMed at UCLA.! 2008: GlobeMed at UCLA was founded! 2009: partners with the Amuru Youth Center in! northern Uganda! In 2011, we have now have 29 students involved in our chapter and have gone on 2 GROW trips!!
since our founding in April 2008 , our chapter has grown from to members.
AMURU YOUTH CENTER [WORKS IN ANAKA, NWOYA DISTRICT, UGANDA] POPULATION: 41,010 Anaka is a very small village on the on the main highway between Gulu and Pakwach, in one of Ugandaʼs 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.!
KEY FACT: In 2010, 46% of Uganda's population was under the age of 15. ! KEY FACT: Only 42% of Ugandans have access to a health facility to receive vital vaccinations to protect against preventable diseases.
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 Lordʼs 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. !
[About Amuru Youth Center] FOUNDED IN 2009
The Amuru Youth Center (AYC) 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. AYC is one of 5 youth centers created as part of STFʼs Face-to-Face program to reach youth affected by war in Northern Uganda. GlobeMed at UCLA began our partnership with the Amuru Youth Center in 2009. AYCʼs 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. AYCʼs 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. !

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PARTNER AMURU YOUTH CENTER
To Whom It May Concern:!
PHOTO OF YOUR PARTNER CONTACT/STAFF, HERE
I am writing on behalf of Straight Talk Foundation (STF) with regards to our partnership with GlobeMed at UCLA. Although our organizations have only been partners for two years, the amount of growth that has resulted from strengthening this relationship has been truly impressive.! STF is an indigenous not for profit organization registered in 1997 and it focuses on behaviour change communication work with teachers, parents and young people. STFʼs mission is to improve the lives of adolescents through the provision of quality social and behavior change communication programs and services for young people in Uganda.! STF works through print, radio and face to face communication media. In the northern districts of Uganda,STF operates four youth centers providing sexual and reproductive health information and services in post conflict northern Uganda . These exist in the districts of Gulu, Kitgum, AMuru and Adjumani. STF youth centers provide counseling services, educational tools, contraceptives, and safe spaces for engaging in collective dialogue and peer interaction,.! In August of 2010, five members of GlobeMed came to visit the Amuru Youth Center and the STF headquarters in Kampala. Their presence in Uganda was greatly appreciated; it allowed our organizations to unite our visions and continue to set goals that we would like to see materialize within our communities. The work of Amuru Youth Cneter has been made possible with the help of partners such as GlobeMed at UCLA.! While on this trip, GlobeMed established contacts with the Young Mothers Forum, supported by the Amuru Youth Center. After hearing these womenʼs stories, GlobeMed began forging a plan to help meet the economic needs of these young women, demonstrating this young motherʼs clubʼs heart for the Ugandan people and will to institute positive change in the lives of those in need. Our current collaborative project is simply called “The Goat Project”. This project aims to buy goats to give these mothers a steady income. The mothers will profit by selling the goat milk and cheese, and once the goats are bred, they will pass the kids to another mother in need.! This project embodies the sustainable and long term change GlobeMed at UCLA wishes to institute.! STF is delighted to collaborate with GlobeMed in improving the health and wellbeing of young people in Uganda, especially those living in poverty and post conflict through empowering young people to lead! productive lives.! Sincerely! Susan Ajok, Straight Talk Foundation Executive Director.!
AMURU YOUTH CENTER
[Why income- ! generating?]!
GlobeMed at UCLA
True to the GlobeMed model, our project started by listening to the needs of the community. Last summer on our GROW trip, we sat in on a meeting for the young motherʼs forum based at the youth center. They told us that their biggest challenge is finding the money to pay for basic health, nutrition, and education for their children, let alone themselves. The women knew they wanted to start some sort of small business, and after going through agriculture, jewelry, etc, they decided goats were the most beneficial. After that, we worked with the director to develop a sustainable income generating project for these young mothers. !

$3,000 TO PURCHASE GOATS, VETERINARY CARE, TRANSPORTATION, AND TRAINING FOR YOUNG MOTHERS
2010 – 2011 Annual Report!
Supporting sexual health education initiatives and an income generating goat project for 30 young mothers in Anaka, Uganda! The Goat Project: Gift. Get. Give.! Who: 64 young mothers age 17-24, each with 1-3 children and ! little to no support from the fathers or their families! How: The GROW team goes to Uganda and 30 mothers are randomly selected to receive a goat. The mothers will attend a 2 day training session where the first day is spent learning how to care for the goats, breed them, how to know when they're sick and what to do, learn what vaccinations they need, etc. The second day is spent learning how to value this gift, manage finances, budget the new income, etc. The interns will then purchase the 30 goats from a breeder and take them to a veterinarian for vaccinations and a health check up. The goats will then be given to the selected mothers. The goats produce milk, cheese, etc. and eventually breed. The mothers will give the baby goats to the next group of randomly selected mothers and the original group of mothers pays back the price of the vaccinations for the baby goats.!

07 TOPICS! Dear Friends and Supporters,! !After filling the position of globalhealthU Coordinators for the past year, the importance of globalhealthU within the GlobeMed model has become increasingly clear. As college students and global health advocates striving to make a change, education has to be a central focus of our work. By approaching the global health field with a genuine interest in first understanding the problems that are present, we are better equipped to tackle them. One of our best discussions this year was during our â€œLGBTQ and Global Healthâ€? portion, where we discussed the controversial anti-gay bill in Uganda. In our discussion we talked about broad issues concerning US foreign aid and intervention in Uganda, but also took the topic to a more tangible level, discussing the implications of this bill on our partner organization, the Amuru Youth Center. The passion that this discussion drew from the GlobeMed students was amazing and inspiring to see.! !All in all, globalhealthU is something that sets GlobeMed apart from other global health organizations, and is an invaluable program that can help nurture young college students into a path of global health leadership. !

“The goat cutouts were one of our most innovative ideas. Even though they were a little silly and took a lot of time to make, constructing them really bonded our chapter and the finished goats will hopefully be used to raise awareness of our projects for years to comes!” – Kristina Lai

GLOBALHEALTHU EVENT PHOTO, HERE
Our chapter constructed 25+ cardboard goat cutouts, each with a statistic or fact relevant to our income-generating goat project in Uganda. Some of the goats were painted red to symbolize those infected with HIV/AIDS based on the actual percentage of people in Uganda who are HIV positive. This was a very successful awareness campaign because they were eyecatching, direct, and fun. People at UCLA were quickly able to indentify the goats with GlobeMedʼs project and the benefits of goats in a young Ugandan motherʼs life.!
Global Health Awareness Week SPEAKER AND DINNER The Global Health Professional and Student Dinner brought together students and global health professionals from across the UCLA campus to foster creative discourse on international health challenges. The keynote speech will be given by Dr. Molly Joel Coye, Chief Innovation Officer of the UCLA Health System. Her talk was entitled "Innovations in Global Health: Sharpening the Focus and Accelerating the Pace." After this, students and global health professionals gathered to have dinner and discuss current challenges facing global health.!

29 # OF COMMUNITY BUILDING EVENTS:! 17 # OF HOURS VOLUNTEERED WITH LOS ANGELES BASED ORGANIZATIONS:! 706 TOTAL # OF CHAPTER MEMBERS:!
Community building at the UCLA GlobeMed chapter is both a way to connect to and improve the city of L.A. through volunteering as well as an opportunity to build priceless bonds with fellow chapter members. This year, each member participated in community service events ranging from helping out at the L.A. food bank, volunteering at the Union Rescue Mission Homeless Outreach, and painting benches at Emerson Middle School. We also had staff retreats each quarter where members were able to interact outside of meetings at local parks and even at the Marina Aquatic Center.

“While the GROW trip had such a monumental impact on my life, it is almost indescribable ,but it is safe to say I left a piece of my heart there with the people who I am fortunate enough to call close friends. For those of you who have been on GROW, you know exactly what I’m talking about, and for those of you who haven’t, you simply must go. ” -- Meghan Kennedy, c/o 2012
04 LENGTH OF STAY:! 5 weeks # OF GLOBEMED GROW INTERNS:!
WORK DESCRIPTION:! UCLA Grow interns are working with the Young Mother's Forum at the Amuru Youth Center to start an income-generating program. The program will be based on goat-rearing, and the interns will be working to get it off the ground in August, including a two-day workshop on how to fully take advantage of the goats. It will be structured as a micro-credit system using the goats as the investment capital for the mother's to utilize and breed as the return. We are going to collaborate with the young mothers to develop the best model for a sustainable and successful project.!

WORLD DAY OF SOCIAL JUSTICE
GLOBEMED AT UCLA joined 31 other GlobeMed chapters across the nation in a network-wide commemoration of the 3rd Annual World Day of Social Justice on February 20, 2011, by asking students, professors, and community members on campus an openended, thought provoking question relating to social justice. ! OUR QUESTION: The most unjust thing in the world is ________.!
The most unjust thing in the world is __________. Â
BEHIND THE SCENES: We wanted people to reflect on a concrete injustice in the world and pinpoint one issue they were most passionate about. We hoped that this question would force people to think critically about social justice as a real-life determinant of people's well-being instead of an abstract, lofty concept. As people were walking into Global Getdown, we asked them to take a moment and answer our question. This strategy helped communicate our mission as well as engage our audience. !
WE ASKED OVER 22 PEOPLE AT UCLA.
HEREâ€™S HOW THEY RESPONDED >>
GlobeMed at UCLA asked over 22 people to fill in the blank
The most unjust thing in the world is ___________.!

“Summit 2011 was my first Summit and I learned that GlobeMed is more than UCLA and more than our partner in Uganda. I learned that the GlobeMed community is comprised of people from different backgrounds and cities, with different majors, views and goals. It was amazing to learn that we all have the same passion; a passion for social justice and global health equity because we all know that life and health are human rights. I can't wait to find out where this passion takes each individual and GlobeMed as a whole. Summit 2011 was my first Summit but definitely not my last.” !

"I am so sad to be leaving this amazing group that has never stopped surprising me in their ability to gather and unite as some of the most passionate and dedicated future leaders I have had the honor of working with. As sad as I am to leave, I'm just as excited for when we reunite and combine our forces again to further change the world in the future.”– Christina Fox c/o 2011!
The future of GlobeMed at UCLA is bright and we cannot be more excited to see where it takes us. AYer our exec board retreat in the spring, the current and future e-‐board members came together to discuss what it is that we hope to do next year. The goal of the retreat was to understand what exactly it was that we want to do so that we can accomplish these op[mis[c aspira[ons. An overarching theme of these discussions was expansion. This past year as a chapter, we were able to establish such a strong sense of community that we can now go beyond calling ourselves a group of students to calling ourselves a group of friends. The strength of these rela[onships further fostered the passion that brought us all together. Next year, we hope to spread this sense of community to reach even more of UCLA’s campus. As a chapter, we hope to expand in number of members, ﬁnding more students dedicated to ﬁgh[ng injus[ce and global health inequi[es from across all diﬀerent disciples of study. With more members, comes a larger network on campus that we can u[lize to have a greater impact. We hope to work with other student groups on campus with similar goals and also with those who are looking to become more involved in crea[ng posi[ve sustainable change. Working on such a large campus can be challenging, but in the past three years we have steadily increased our recogni[on on campus. A main focus of next year will be to con[nue to establish ourselves as a leading student organiza[on on campus while separa[ng ourselves so that our mission is clear to others. We want more people to say: “I’ve heard of GlobeMed” and understand the amazing partnership we have with the Amuru Youth Center. With the end of the summer, comes the return of our second GROW team. While in Uganda, the team will be going through an extensive reﬂec[on process so that we can see where our partnership is set to go in the future and what we hope to accomplish together. When they return with a new project plan for the next year, we are determined to raise more money than ever before to support it ﬁnancially and ensure its success. We would like to thank everyone for their support thus far and hope that you con[nue follow us in the future so you can see just how far we can go. We are conﬁdent in saying that next year will be our best year yet! With much hope for the future, The “E-‐Unit” GlobeMed at UCLA Execu[ve Board 2011-‐2012
