GlobeMed at Dartmouth partners with KWAT to promote the health of women and children displaced by ethnic conflict in Burma.

Who We Are // GlobeMed at Dartmouth

GlobeMed at Dartmouth is a student-led non-profit and one of the 56 GlobeMed chapters around the country. We partner with the Kachin Women’s Association Thailand (KWAT) to promote the health of women and children displaced by the ethnic conflict in Burma.


Our Partner // Kachin Women’s Association Thailand


As a result of increasing social and economic problems in the Kachin state of Burma, more and more people have left Burma in search of a new home, primarily in China and Thailand. KWAT was born in 1999 in Chiang Mai, a city in Thailand near the Thai-Burmese border, out of the need for women to organize themselves to help solve these problems both in Kachin State and in Thailand. Now, more than a decade later, KWAT continues to strive for the empowerment and advancement of Kachin women in order to improve the lives of women and children in Kachin society. Their goals are many-fold, including promoting women's participation in politics, combating trafficking and violence against women, and providing health education and health services, to name a few.


Our Project // $10,000 for improving the quality of reproductive health in Burma


GlobeMed at Dartmouth aims to improve the health of Kachin women and children who have been internally displaced due to ethnic conflict in Burma. Specifically, we will fund three programs through our partner, the Kachin Women's Association Thailand. We will be supporting a fund for emergency C-sections, funding adolescent reproductive education trainings, and a community health outreach campaign. The emergency fund for C-sections will fund up to 3 C-sections for mothers who would otherwise not be able to afford such a procedure. The adolescent reproductive education trainings will reach 100 adolescents who would otherwise not have access to this information since many live in IDP camps. The community health outreach program will fund KWAT health staff to travel to 20 IDP camps and villages.
