Who We Are // GlobeMed at Arizona State University

Our Partner // ICOD Action Network in Lyantonde, Uganda
ICOD Action Network is a registered NGO headquartered in the Lyantonde district of Uganda. ICOD is an acronym for Integrated Community Efforts for Development. The organization envisions a Ugandan society empowered, free from disease and suffering and where human rights are observed. Their overall objective is to respond to socio-economic challenges in societies affected by HIV/AIDS, high unemployment rates, insufficient health care, poor sanitation and famine. ICOD Action Network has continued to inspire individuals in Southwestern Uganda's poorest countries to find innovative and sustainable local solutions to end extreme poverty, hunger and diseases.
Our Project // $10000 to build houses, pit latrines, and water tanks for orphan children.
The project between GlobeMed at Arizona State University and ICOD Action Network focuses primarily on helping families affected and infected by HIV/AIDs through a housing and sanitation project. ICOD uses a locally developed index to evaluate which households are the most vulnerable by assessing their availability to shelter, pit latrine, and access to safe water alongside the prevalence of preventable diseases, cases of malnutrition, school attendance, and access to scholastic materials.
Our project aims to provide:
-Good shelter to orphans
-Protect beneficiaries from natural hazards
-Reduce cases of diseases like cholera and diarrhea
-Provide clean water resources
-Increase school attendance
-increase the communities participation in growth and development through local project participation.
