About Us

Global Medical Brigades is an organization that will provide consistent access to healthcare to citizens in economically disadvantaged countries. Nationally it is the world's largest student-led global health organization. CWRU's chapter will undertake a mobile clinic in one of four underserved countries annually along with chapters across the nation in order to improve the quality of life in those countries. While on this brigade, CWRU students will ensure the underserved citizen's access to primary health care and health education. Additionally, the organization will be involved in educating the CWRU and Cleveland community about Global Health issues present throughout the world.

A Holistic View

Global Brigades uniquely implements a holistic model to meet a community’s health and economic goals.

Our chapter specifically works with medical brigades to provide sustainable health systems to the communities.

Medical Brigades

Each year, our chapter participates in an in-person 7-9 day Medical Brigades to either Honduras, Guatemala, Panama, Ghana, and Greece. We work to empower the communities to allow for a sustainable model of healthcare.

What our brigades look like:

Medical/Dental Clinic

Learn how to triage patients and shadow doctors, nurses, dentists, and pharmacists, and direct patient exposure!

Charla Station

Teach children the importance of oral hygiene and provide fluoride treatments for them!

Public Health Project

Help communities build eco-stoves, latrines, showers, water storage units, and deliver drinking water filters?

Response to Covid-19

Global Brigades has suspended brigades to all of our program countries and are targeting a reopening date of March 1st, 2021. Our team is dedicated to protecting the health and ensuring the safety of all our volunteers, staff, and community partners. Travel restrictions and social distancing guidance are positive steps to help prevent COVID 19.

In the meantime, we are looking at new TeleBrigades programs and are hoping to continue preparing for 2021 in-person brigades. Now more than ever, our community partners count on your continued support to ensure we can empower them to meet their health and economic goals.
