GlobeMed at Tufts is a group dedicated to building a movement of people who believe in health and justice for all. They partner with Nyaya Health, a U.S. non-profit that works to provide free healthcare to the people of Achham, Nepal.
In 2012, Nyaya Health treated more than 30,000 patients as they began to implement a sustainable healthcare system in the region. Tufts GlobeMed is proud to be a partner of this dynamic organization.

GlobeMed at Tufts, a group on campus that is “committed to improving the lives of people in impoverished communities around the world through better healthcare,” recently took a look back on their impressive fall 2012 semester. Their “Photo Review of Fall Semester” chronicles fundraisers, new members, and new adventures. Visit their blog for complete look at their year in photos.
What will they tackle spring semester?
There is so much beauty here. Beauty in the scenery, and in tricks of the light. Beauty in the wedding of two staff members, and all of the staff’s incredible commitment to the hospital. Beauty in the resilience of the patients who walk for hours in the morning to get their treatments, and then walk hours back at night to go work in their fields. Beauty in the son who stays by his mother’s side as she struggles through MDR TB, and in the kid that pulled through from a case of Kala Azar.But there is also hardship here in Achham. In the patients who we can’t help and who don’t make it back home.This is a land of beauty that deserves beauty. That is why we do our work.
