George Washington University Global Brigade aims to improve access to healthcare along with implementing sustainable health systems in remote, rural, and under resourced communities. The students are traveling virtually to various countries to aid in primary health care along with other health screenings. For each clinic, the students along with other health professionals will be immersed from triage to the discharge while following the local physician. For this upcoming telebrigade, we will be visiting Honduras, Ghana, and Greece with each country having a different healthcare system. Each clinic will enable the students to obtain important skills to be utilized in and out of the healthcare setting.
How You Can Help
This brigade has a donation goal to help cover all the necessary costs for program implementation, such as equipment, local doctors, pharmacists, translators, and support staff, but most important, the year-round follow-up to the project by local staff to ensure the sustainability over time. To help raise funds, students have teamed up with DoneGood an ethical & sustainable marketplace.
