GlobeMed is a student-led nonprofit focused on addressing global health inequity. GlobeMed creates long-term partnerships between college students and grassroots health organizations around the world. These partnerships are fostered through direct and frequent communication between partner and chapter, as well as through financial support for specific projects.

GlobeMed at Dartmouth partners with the Kachin Women’s Association Thailand (KWAT), located in Chiang Mai, Thailand. KWAT supports and empowers women and children who have left their homes in the Kachin State of Burma and have crossed the Thai-Burmese border into Thailand. In addition to our work with KWAT, GlobeMed at Dartmouth will host a year-long curriculum of discussions on major topics in global health, engage in fundraising campaigns, and send a group of students to work with KWAT over the summer of 2012.

The Kachin Women’s Association Thailand , or “KWAT,” was established in 1999 to improve the lives of women and children from the Kachin state of Burma.  Based in Chiang Mai, Thailand, KWAT operates several programs to achieve its mission: a Health program, an Anti-Trafficking program, a Migrant Worker program, a Capacity Building program, an Income Generation program, and a Documentation and Research program.  GlobeMed at Dartmouth has funded a Reproductive Health training course for migrant workers and village leaders in Burma and Thailand, and is currently funding the implementation of a medical laboratory in Mai Ja Yang to provide diagnostic screenings for HIV, Malaria, and TB. For more information, visit .
