GlobeMed at Notre Dame partners with PEDA in Vientiane, Laos to thwart the spread of preventable diseases.

Our Chapter // GlobeMed at Notre Dame

Founded in 2011, GlobeMed at the University of Notre Dame works with Population Education Development Association (PEDA), a civil society organization stationed in Vientiane, Laos. Together we aspire to provide adequate health education and services in order to prevent Malaria, HIV/AIDS, and Tuberculosis in the vulnerable communities of the rural countryside.

Our Partner // Promotion for Education and Development Association in Vientiane, Laos

PEDA is non-profit civil society organization founded in 2001, initially focused on poverty reduction and environmental management. Currently PEDA aims to promote community self reliance and sustainable development in health, specifically sexual reproductive health and the prevention of malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, as well as human and drug trafficking. PEDA has 29 registered members and 440 volunteers across 9 provinces in Laos. GlobeMed at Notre Dame's project aims to increase understanding of malaria, including preventative measures and symptom recognition, and reduce transmission rates for hard-to-reach populations. Since 2011, GlobeMed at Notre Dame has raised over $30,000 for PEDA's projects.

Our Project // $30,000 to Expand Community Health Education

This project will be developed by up-scaling the recently ended the round 7 GFATM-prohject, in which PEDA found existing resource gaps that still burden and underserve additional areas and villages in the Nong District of Savannakhet. PEDA will target new communities using a peer educator approach (IPC) approach in which community leaders will be selectively trained to serve as an ongoing educational resource for their community. In addition to IPC, PEDA will conduct outreach programs and Information Education Communication (IEC) interventions in order to increase knowledge of malaria, introduce access to early diagnosis and treatment, and promote consistent bed net usage. By increasing knowledge and triggering behavioral changes, this project intends to reduce the incidence of malaria transmission in vulnerable communities. Project effectiveness will be monitored and evaluated by comparing quarterly data to a baseline KAP survey using random sampling.

GlobeMed at Notre Dame has raised $20,000 so far this year.
