A project of GlobeMed
GlobeMed at Tufts University works with Nyaya Health to help provide free healthcare to the people of Achham, Nepal.
Who We Are // GlobeMed at Tufts University
Founded in 2011, GlobeMed at Tufts is one of 55 GlobeMed chapters working to improve the health of people living in poverty around the world. We are a student-run non profit that trains students to spread awareness, take advantage of surrounding resources, and develop the knowledge and skill sets necessary to raise money and contribute to the success of our partner, Nyaya Health. Nyaya was founded with the goal of helping to decrease the health burden in the district of Achham, a resource-poor area in western Nepal.
Our Partner // Nyaya Health in Achham, Nepal
Nyaya Health has grown into a revolutionary non-profit that focuses on data driven programs and crystal-clear transparency to deliver healthcare in one of the most remote and economically disadvantaged regions in the world. Through a unique public-private sector partnership with the Nepali government, Nyaya has implemented a sustainable healthcare system in the region.
In 2012, Nyaya treated over 30,000 patients, and it’s community health workers program contacted an additional 20,000 individuals. Additionally the hospital opened the first microbiology lab in the Accham and partnered with Watsi to crowdsource critical surgeries for patients.
Our Project // $13,000 to fundraise for ANC Care, Deliveries, and C-Sections
This year GlobeMed at Tufts will fundraise for ANC Care, Deliveries, and C-Sections. GROW interns may have the opportunity to have an internship experience with senior management at Bayalpata Hospital. Progress towards the project’s “completion” will be measured by numbers of deliveries and C-sections funded. GlobeMed will not be funding a percentage of a single project, but rather directing funds towards the operational expenses related to providing free ANC care, deliveries, and C-sections at Bayalpata Hospital. The number of mothers funded could range from 16 to 23, based on a commitment of $8,000 and the cost of a non-surgical delivery being $350 and a C-section being $500. GlobeMed at Tufts hopes to expand these numbers by raising $13,000, which would fund between 26-37 mothers.
