Michigan State University is a chapter of Global Public Health Brigades, an international movement of university students working to improve health conditions in the developing world. Through an evidence-based model, we work alongside local community members to build projects that tangibly improve lives in Honduras, Nicaragua and Ghana. Volunteers work with local masons and families to build eco-stoves, latrines, concrete floors, showers, and/or water storage units. To ensure long-term sustainability and maintenance, the Public Health program team trains and empowers local community leaders in the formation of a Basic Sanitation Committee. The Basic Sanitation Committee is responsible for carrying out in-home assessments and monitoring the status of the projects. nnIn conjunction with our Public Health Program, Global Brigades also supports communities with healthcare, economic development and clean water projects, and uniquely implements these programs in a holistic model to meet a community’s health and economic goals. Our model systematically builds community ownership and collaboratively executes programs with the end goal of sustainably evolving to a relationship of impact monitoring.

Michigan State University Public Health TeleBrigade March 2021 Honduras
Mar 06, 2021 - Apr 23, 2021

Global Brigades offers Public Health TeleBrigades, a virtual international volunteer program for people who are passionate about WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene). On Public Health TeleBrigades, volunteers empower rural communities to prevent common disease and improve health outcomes in rural Honduran communities. Participants will work with GB partner community’s Basic Sanitation Committee (BSC) through the UNDP’s Healthy Schools and Households program, to identify health challenges, assess market demand for in-home infrastructure solutions, and ultimately build a Community Health Action Plan.  The program does not stop at an Action Plan, the BSC committee implements the plan and shares progress with the volunteers after 6-8weeks of implementation.
