Public Health Brigade volunteers empower under resourced communities in the developing world to decrease life threatening diseases by improving home infrastructure and providing public health education through a 7 day Public Health Brigade in Honduras and Panama. Student volunteers can either join an existing Public Health Brigades chapter on their campus or create their own chapter and recruit other volunteers. Working side-by-side with community members, volunteers improve the overall infrastructure within the home through the construction of four projects: eco-stoves, latrines, water storage units and concrete floors. The four projects were chosen based on observations of medical brigade patient records.
