Founded in 2011, GlobeMed at Rutgers University is part of a network of students in universities across the country who endeavor to create change in global health equity and social justice through partnership with grassroots organizations.

Values

We envision a world in which health – the ability to not only survive but thrive – is possible for all people, regardless of where they call home.

We believe every human life has equal worth and every person deserves the chance to thrive. This belief has drawn together our network of students, communities, and supporters from all walks of life and from every corner of the world.

Health for all is within our grasp, but we can only achieve it by working together.


Our Guiding Principles

Every human life has equal worth. Health is a human right and a matter of social justice.

Together, poverty and disease form a vicious cycle: People become sick because they are poor and poor because they are sick.

The more power and privilege a person has, the more likely they are to be healthy. Across the world, power and privilege are distributed by systems created by people, which elevate certain groups of people while oppressing others.

Because these systems are created by people, they can be changed by the actions of people. Humanity can choose how we share the resources of our finite planet.

Poverty of means is not poverty of ability. Intelligence, talent, and leadership capacity are equally distributed around the world. Opportunities and resources are not.

There are local changemakers in every corner of the world who see the potential of their own communities and are already working to unleash it.

The best way to achieve lasting change is to shift power and resources to local changemakers so that they can lead the transformation of their own communities.

There are young people everywhere who refuse to accept the world’s massive disparities in health and feel a powerful responsibility to act.

Throughout history, transformational change has happened when people from all walks of life have united in partnership and solidarity to fight for equity and justice.
