GlobeMed at UC partners with Social Action for Women in Mae Sot, Thailand to provide Burmese migrants with health education.

Who We Are // GlobeMed at University of Cincinnati

The University of Cincinnati's chapter of GlobeMed was founded in 2011 and is partnered with Social Action for Women (SAW) in Thailand and Burma. GlobeMed at University of Cincinnati has a three part mission: campaign to raise money for SAW, raise awareness of our movement for global health equity and social justice, and maintain and strengthen our partnership with SAW.

Our Partner //Social Action for Women in MaeSot, Thailand

Social Action for Women (SAW) was founded in June 25, 2000 to assist displaced women from Burma who are in crisis situations after having fled to Thailand. SAW is based in Mae Sot and was established to support women facing difficulties through the provision of shelter, health education, rights awareness, counseling, and vocational training. SAW has expanded its focus population to include caring for and educating orphaned children and children of migrant parents. Since fall 2011, GlobeMed at University of Cincinnati has raised over $22,000 for our partner and sent a total of 10 students to intern in Thailand.

Our Project // $14,000 for Personal & Dental Hygiene Peer Education Workshops for Burmese Migrant Workers and Children

Our project is the Community Health Outreach Program (CHOP). It consists of the following three phases:

1. Identify health education focus areas to discuss in training and workshops, increase community reproductive health and basic preventative health knowledge, and increase access to and use of birth control and condoms.

2. Train 20 Peer Educators, two in each target community, to hold workshops, increase community reproductive health and basic preventative health knowledge, and increase access to and use of birth control and condoms.

3. Increase community reproductive health and basic preventative health knowledge through peer educator workshops in their own communities, and provide personal/dental hygiene awareness to the migrant schools.
