Teachers: Join our movement!
Lead your students to implement real-world global health programs.
Global Health Squads
With the facilitation of our local teams, students help improve health outcomes in under resourced communities abroad by supporting clinics, public health campaigns, and sanitation projects.
LEARN HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Building Cultural Competence
Global Health Squads travel abroad to learn directly from our local health care professionals about the community’s challenges of healthcare access and have the opportunity to visit existing health facilities for more context. Each program involves mobile healthcare screenings, impact projects, and cultural immersion activities.
new telemedical program
Global Health TeleSquads directly propels students into an international medical relief setting right from their homes. The program creates an engaging experiential learning environment leveraging telemedicine tools, enriching cultural activities, and our on-the-ground doctors to walk through real patient cases and outcomes from our international clinics.
Health Projects Include
Mobile Medical Clinics
Students enable local health professionals to deliver mobile medical and screening services to community members.
Students enable the construction of infrastructure that improves health outcomes such as hand washing stations, eco-stoves and latrines.
Facilitated by our local teams, students create health workshops for local children in the areas of hygiene, dental health, and preventative health.
Students shadow our on-the-ground physicians in live clinics that are sensitively streamed to your class utilizing telemedical tools to optimize learning experience and participation.
EACH GLOBAL HEALTH SQUAD PROVIDES:
Where We Work
ABOUT HEALTH SQUADS
Global Health Squads work to improve health care access and sanitation infrastructure to improve health outcomes in partner communities. Programs can range between 1-2 weeks and include enrichment activities that build cultural competence inspired by the local population.
Each volunteer has an individual donation goal depending on the country to help cover logistical expenses such as transport, local staff, meals, insurance, accommodations and the year-round follow-up of their program by our teams. Additionally, each group fundraises $1500 as a team to go toward the costs of the sanitation project for the school and clinic materials.
Each Squad needs a minimum of 6 volunteers and one faculty leader. Leaders participate without a donation goal.
