Our Medical program supports the holistic model with four core initiatives: mobile clinics, community health entrepreneurs, patient referrals and regular access to doctors. Our unique model provides sustainable healthcare to community partners.
Mobile medical clinics and preventative health workshops are implemented within partner communities through the utilization of student and health professional volunteers participating in 7-8 day volunteer trips called “Medical Brigades.”
Patients with severe diagnoses during medical brigades are referred to local health clinics and hospitals for more advanced treatments. In appropriate cases, Global Brigades provides financial assistance for treatments. Click here to learn more about our open cases.
Community Health Workers/Entrepreneurs
Volunteers living in the community are trained by our staff to become Community Health Workers/Entrepreneurs (CHWs/CHEs). CHWs/CHEs provide basic medical care, monitor chronic conditions, and serve as point persons for urgent care cases year-round.
Regular Doctor Access
Supported by hired local doctors and Global Brigades alumni doctors, the program will provide access to consultations on a quarterly basis.
