Who are we?
Get to know us and join us!
UCLA Global Medical Brigades is part of a Non-Governmental Organization, Global Brigades, which allows students to give medical aid in Honduras, Ghana, and Panama
Medical Brigades develops sustainable health initiatives and provides relief where there is limited access to healthcare. The program focuses in the countries of Honduras, Panama, and Ghana, where more than 3,000 annual student volunteers and health professionals travel to establish mobile medical clinics in under resourced communities. Each community that we partner with receives a brigade every 3 to 4 months where hundreds of patients are treated and volunteers deliver public health workshops. Between brigades the in-country team maintains relationships with the communities to provide follow-up and conducts community health worker trainings to empower local leaders to perpetuate a consistent level of health care, all while fostering the culture of the community.
