We would like to start by thanking all of you for contributing to another amazing year for GlobeMed at UNC. We feel blessed to have had the opportunity to lead this chapter during its strongest year yet. We have the highest regard for our amazing team of staff and executive board members, whose dedication enabled us to reach and surpass our fundraising goal of $10,000. In the past few years our chapter has become known throughout the network for emphasizing community building and fostering a sense of family among our members. In the 2010-2011 academic year, we spearheaded efforts to build stronger camaraderie with other chapters by hosting the first regional summit, HillTop. Just as our model for community building has taken root across the network, we hope that UNC will once again provide a model for growth and that other chapters will host similar network-wide events in years to come. Most importantly, this year has been tremendous for the development of our partnership with Health Alert Uganda. We initiated dialogue with HAU to further explore the role of GlobeMed at UNC in supporting community health projects and to set a path for the future growth of our relationship. In the summer of 2011, our chapter launched its fourth annual GROW trip. We look forward to seeing the impact of their work on our partnership.

ABOUT US

GlobeMed at UNC – Chapel Hill When GlobeMed at UNC was founded in the spring of 2008, it was a perfect fit for UNC Chapel Hill. The University's administration has been dedicated to supporting social justice endeavors, and many of the students participate in campus organizations. Our partnership with Health Alert Uganda was formed in 2008, and since then the impact of our chapter has been steadily increasing. We have raised over $20,000 since being founded, including being awarded a Service Award by the Gillings School of Global Health to implement a SMS-based communication systems for HAU's community health workers on our fourth GROW trip.

since our founding in April 2008 , our chapter has grown from to members.

[HEALTH ALERT UGANDA] [WORKS IN GULU, UGANDA] POPULATION: 154,000 In the Gulu district in northern Uganda, fighting by the Lord's Resistance Army previously displaced up to 90% of the population. Much of the population is still living in IDP camps.

[About Health Alert Uganda] KEY FACT: Northern Uganda suffers from an HIV/AIDS infection rate of 8.5%, compared with a 6.4% nationwide prevalence. KEY FACT: As of March 2010, 18% of HIV/AIDS transmission in Uganda occurs via mother to child transmission

FOUNDED IN 2004 Health Alert- Uganda was founded to fill the void of healthcare for children infected and affected with HIV/AIDS in the Northern Ugandan districts of Gulu, Amuru, and Nwoya. As it's mission HAU is committed to increasing access to quality community-based care and support services for children between 0-17 years who are infected and affected with HIV/AIDS. The partnership between GlobeMed and HAU began in 2008.

[Why a data entry and technological capacity building?]

&

GlobeMed at UNC

2010 – 2011 Annual Report

OUR PROJECT

This project is to increase the capacity to work and create documentation for HAU. This project included purchasing a new copier machine, new modems, and increasing the capacity for data entry. This will increase the ability for HAU to produce complete reports with concrete documentation. In order for HAU to be able to secure more funding from the area, documentation is key.

Technological capacity building is accomplished through increased provision of the means to acquire the necessary items to increase report writing and documentation in Gulu, Uganda.

$2,500 TO PURCHASE 1 LAPTOP, ANTIVIURS FOR 9 COMPUTERS, 1 COLOR PRINTER, 1 PROJECTOR, 1 MODEM, AND 2 INK CARTRIDGES

This project included purchasing a new copier machine in which HAU will put in their newly acquired store and charge per copy to have funds for the youth projects. The purchase of two new modems for the office will increase the capacity for internet. There were previously issues using the internet in the youth center so one of these modems will be placed directly in the center. The purchase of a new computer with increased digital storage will help as they continue adding clients to their current list of 2,402 individuals. As the client list gets longer, it is necessary to have more computer space to store the digital patient follow up forms. All of this will increase HAU’s capacity to produce reports with concrete documentation. During the course of the GROW internship, data entry per day was increased to complete their current files.


HEALTH ALERT UGANDA

[Why Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission?]

&

GlobeMed at UNC

2010 – 2011 Annual Report

OUR PROJECT

Momma Kits play an important role in the efforts of prevention of pediatric AIDS as it provides the mother with the necessities for a sanitary, safe delivery which otherwise would not have been obtained due to the lack of financial resources. By continuing and increasing the funding for the Momma Kits, this project supports Health Alert Uganda’s mission of providing quality health care access to more mothers thereby preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS.

58 MOTHERS WILL BE POSITIVELY IMPACTED.

$600 TO PURCHASE MATERIALS FOR 58 MOMMA KITS

Mother-to-Child Transmission of Pediatric HIV/AIDS is prevented with the distribution of Momma Kits to poverty-stricken HIV+ mothers in Gulu, Uganda. GlobeMed at UNC funded and purchased 58 Momma Kits in efforts of preventing pediatric AIDS as it ensures the mother will have the necessities for a sanitary, safe delivery which otherwise would not have been obtained due to the lack of financial resources. This project supports Health Alert Uganda’s mission of providing quality health care access to more mothers thereby preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS.

[Why income generating activities?]

&

GlobeMed at UNC

2010 – 2011 Annual Report

OUR PROJECT

A lack of income is a severe barrier for many of HAU's clients to accessing proper nutrition, medicines, health care workers or traveling to clinics. These activities are intended to support their long term income generation through the self sustaining loans of goats and seeds.

$250 TO PURCHASE MATERIALS FOR THE GOAT LENDING: 1 GOAT, 70 LITERS OF FUEL, 1 VETS TIME TO TREAT THE GOAT, 21 ROPES

$550 TO PURCHASE MATERIALS FOR THE SEED LENDING: BEANS, ONIONS, BASINS, GNUTS, SOYA BEANS, AND FUEL

Income generation is accomplished through goatlending and seed-lending programs to caretakers and peer support groups in Gulu, Uganda. The GROW team will continue and improve the seed-lending and goat-lending projects started by previous teams. Seed-lending gives seeds to two peer groups of approximately 40 members each in Alero and Olwal sub-counties. This year we will supplement the project by adding different crops and giving additional seeds to compensate for a poor crop. The goat-lending project gives loans in the form of goats to 21 caretaker groups in four sub-counties. After evaluating the project's progress, the GROW team will sponsor a fund to purchase medicines for the goat and will purchase new, stronger ropes for the goats. These activities will help to generate income for the groups in the long term.

$4,344.12

Since the beginning of our partnership with HAU, GlobeMed at UNC has raised over $20,000 for community health projects.


HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE YEAR Bag and Bead Market Sept 2010-April 2011 The 2009 summer interns purchased hand-made beaded jewelry and the 2010 summer interns purchased bags hand-made by women affected by HIV and connected to our partner, Health Alert Uganda. They were brought back to Chapel Hill for GlobeMed to sell to the UNC campus and surrounding area. Not only is a beautiful good being sold to raise money for HAU, but there is a story that brings awareness to our partner and the global initiative to fight HIV/AIDS. This was a year long effort that raised over $1000 for HAU.

07 TOPICS PHILOSOPHICAL FRAMEWORKS OF GLOBAL HEALTH The goal of ghU is to stimulate deep thinking. We want people to be able to think for themselves and to develop opinions that they can defend. We want each person to be able to think critically about issues around the world. This year we struggled getting the younger crowd used to the global health lingo and after that we wanted to help everyone define these words for themselves. Being able to question everything and fight for answers while thinking deeply is an important skill as a future global health leader. We are developing leaders within our chapters.

Community Agriculture versus International Food Aid PANEL DISCUSSION April 14th 2011

This panel was intended to initiate intellectual thinking and conversation surrounding contemporary controversial issues in global health. It concentrated on the effectiveness and impact of community agriculture as compared to international food aid. The panel discussed the effects of these two strategies as they relate to levels of improved nutrition and food shortages in the developing world.


COMMUNITY BUILDING 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: 06 TOTAL # OF CHAPTER MEMBERS:

This year our chapter focused on building our internal community. Our fall and spring retreats brought members from different committees together to strengthen our chapter, while smaller chapter events like documentary viewing parties and working at an outdoor garden helped us to learn more about our mission and each other. Additionally, GlobeMed at UNC hosted the first ever regional HillTop conference which worked to strengthen ties across the network. We look forward to pushing outward in the coming year and working with the Chapel Hill and Triangle communities to support our partner, Health Alert Uganda.


[GRASSROOTS ON-SITE WORK] Through Grassroots On-site Work (GROW) internships, students make a positive impact in the community by working alongside their partner organization to further ongoing and new projects.

WORLD DAY OF SOCIAL JUSTICE

GLOBEMED AT UNC 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 open-ended, thought provoking question relating to social justice. OUR QUESTION: [Everyone has the right to ____.]

Everyone has the right to

__________.

BEHIND THE SCENES: Throughout the year, many of our ghU discussions ended in discussions about human rights. Members of our chapter boiled many of the issues down to disagreements between global players about what people should and should not have a right to. We wanted to pose this question to others in our community, and the World Day of Social Justice was the perfect opportunity to do so! This question is inexorably linked to many of our partners in GlobeMed as those they serve often have their rights infringed upon. For Health Alert Uganda, these questions surround issues of school fees and access to ART therapies.

WE ASKED OVER 28 PEOPLE AT UNC.

HERE’S HOW THEY RESPONDED >>


WORLD DAY OF SOCIAL JUSTICE GlobeMed at UNC asked 28 people to fill in the blank to answer the question,

Everyone has the right to _______. (1) Insert your university name, # of people you asked, and your WDSJ question above. Adjust font size as necessary to fit it all.

2011 GLOBAL HEALTH SUMMIT

2011 DELEGATES: Elliot Montpellier, Gabrielle Neri-Mynatt, Tanya Davis-Castro, Amy Patel, Jesse Goldberg, Sarah Jagdmann, Alecia Westphalen

“The 2011 GlobeMed Summit was by far one of the most influential experiences for me. Hearing inspirational talks from the wide array of speakers and being able to interact with them one on one fueled the passion in my work with GlobeMed. By far the best part was meeting such an amazing and diverse group of people from all of the amazing chapters. The dedication I saw from everyone was truly an inspiration for me, and I consider all of them a partner in this movement and a life-long friend.”

-- Jesse Goldberg, c/o 2012

April 7 – 10 in Evanston, IL Featuring Honorary Keynote

DR. JOIA MUKHERJEE Chief Medical Officer, Partners in Health


“My experiences with GlobeMed at UNC and our partner have taught me so much. Because of GlobeMed, I graduated with valuable leadership skills and knowledge of public health issues. In addition, I was able to meet so many passionate, like-minded individuals both at UNC and at Health Alert Uganda. – Breanne Rehley c/o 2011

Gabbi and Kelli are excited to move forward as the presidents of GlobeMed at UNC for the coming 20112012 year. We have already met with our new Executive Board and have great things in mind for the chapter. During this summer, our GROW team will be working to strengthen our ties with Health Alert Uganda. Our chapter members have indicated a strong desire to better understand who the HAU staff members are as well as specific programs they are supporting in Gulu. Our GROW team is gathering information, photos and videos to be shown to the chapter over the coming year to help the GlobeMed staff maintain focus on our mission. As a chapter, we are also working to improve internal communication and planning by moving to a new online homepage complete with a chapter calendar, GlobeMed Wiki, and a file-sharing application. We hope to bring global health knowledge to our members through a more interactive GlobalHealthU program and to our community by working with Chapel Hill – Carrboro Schools. Our biggest goal for the coming year is to improve upon our fundraising strategy. We hope to expand our individual giving campaigns to more family, friends and especially community members as well as strategically space our major campaigns across the course of each semester. Donors can visit www.razoo.com/story/GlobeMed-At-Unc to make donations to support Health Alert Uganda’s work to support children affected and infected with HIV/AIDS in northern Uganda. A $10 donation can fund a safe delivery kit for an HIV positive mother to ensure that her child has a healthy, HIV negative start to life.
