Students Empowering Communities

University of Toronto Mississauga Global Brigades (UTMGB) is a Global Brigades chapter situated at the Mississauga campus of the University of Toronto. Global Brigades mobilizes university students and professionals through skill-based programs (healthcare, business, law, engineering) that work in partnership with community members to improve quality of life in under resourced regions while respecting local culture. Since 2004, Global Brigades has mobilized thousands of university students and professionals through ten skill-based programs that work in partnership with community members to improve quality of life in under resourced regions while respecting local culture.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Medical Brigades

Chapters provide primary health care services to small, under resourced, rural communities with limited to no access to medical care. Physicians provide patient consults and prescribe treatment for acute illnesses. Students work in triage, shadow physicians, provide education workshops, and help to distribute medicine in the pharmacy.
At UTMGB, we run our own medical brigade programs where students and medical professionals working alongside local communities and staff to implement sustainable health systems. We work in remote, rural, and under resourced communities in Honduras, Panama, Nicaragua and Ghana who would otherwise have limited to no access to health care.
