SUNY New Paltz is a chapter of Global Medical Brigades, an international movement of students and medical professionals working alongside local communities and staff to implement sustainable health systems. We work in remote, rural, and under resourced communities in Honduras, Panama, Nicaragua and Ghana who would otherwise have limited to no access to health care. Each community receives a brigade every 3 to 4 months where hundreds of patients are provided access to healthcare and volunteers deliver public health workshops. Electronic patient records are collected for future visitations and to monitor overall community health trends. nnIn conjunction with our Medical Program, Global Brigades also supports communities with economic development, sanitation 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.

SUNY New Paltz Medical Telebrigade May 2021 Honduras
May 24, 2021 - May 28, 2021

Global Brigades offers Medical TeleBrigades, a virtual international medical volunteer program for people who care about equitable access to healthcare. During a Medical TeleBrigade, participants have the opportunity to apply and build upon their medical knowledge through skill-based volunteering, foster cultural competency through virtual immersion, and deliver real impact through our local team by participating in live medical urban clinics and supporting rural clinics. TeleBrigades align with/fit in/supports Global Brigades’ initiatives to actively break down the barriers that people face by allowing them to attain proper medical services regardless of their location or socioeconomic status. Rural clinics reach partner communities on a quarterly basis, while our urban clinic provides daily services and facilitates professional medical care and access to medicine at low cost. All year round, our in-country team maintains relationships with the communities to provide follow-up and to conduct Community Health Worker (CHW) trainings to empower local leaders to sustain a consistent level of healthcare. Electronic patient records are collected for future visitations and to monitor overall community health trends.
