All around the world, people continue to face barriers to achieving prosperous, healthy livelihoods. While the field of global health has allocated significant resources to decreasing these barriers, the world still faces tremendous needs. GlobeMed believes that realizing global health equity requires a shift in our collective approach to global collaboration that centers poor communities and enables local organizations to be the lead strategists and drivers of the change they want to see.
Through strategic engagement of university students and grassroots changemakers, GlobeMed partnerships provide a space for 21st Century global health leaders to learn and apply the human skills necessary to build a more effective global health workforce. Through trainings, peer-to-peer learning, and cross-cultural relationship building, we foster 6 core leadership practices among members of our network.

Through involvement in GlobeMed today, thousands of university students better understand how to partner with grassroots organizations in an equitable way, preparing them to shift power and resources to communities effected by poverty throughout their careers. Simultaneously, grassroots partners are given space to build the skills necessary to be the lead strategists of their GlobeMed partnerships, and 74% report feeling more equipped to collaborate with other international partners as a result.
