About Medical Brigades
Global Medical Brigades (GMB) develops sustainable health initiatives and provides relief where there is limited access to healthcare. Our current focus is in Central America where more than 3,000 annual student volunteers and health professionals travel to establish mobile medical clinics in under resourced communities. Each community that we partner with receives a brigade every 3 to 4 months where hundreds of patients are treated and volunteers deliver public health workshops. Between brigades our in-country team maintains relationships with the communities to provide follow-up and conducts community health worker trainings to empower local leaders to perpetuate a consistent level of health care.
