Proud Partners with the Physical Therapy Global Health Club!

In May, we began our discussions with the Physical Therapy Global Health Club located at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus about the critical importance of Physical Therapy in Global Health.  The club’s 30 student members were seeking greater knowledge about and a stronger foundation in Global Health.

Through emBOLDen Alliances’ field experiences in several countries, we have understood firsthand the necessity of each healthcare team member collaboratively providing holistic, complete patient care.  In addition, we firmly believe that Physical Therapists have a vital role in creating and actualizing Global Health practice, program, and policy!

Thus, beginning in July, a yearlong partnership was born between emBOLDen Alliances and the Physical Therapy Global Health Club, supported by the President’s Diversity Fund for Development and Support.

These are some of our innovative programs:

  • Peru:  Our yearlong partnership with CU Peru continues! Through Leadership Development, Strategic Planning, and Program Management, we are assisting this student-led, student-run NGO fulfill their mission to improve the health and well-being of communities in the Peruvian Amazon.
  • Uganda:  We improved operational efficiencies, inventory practices, facilities management, and product development for an NGO working toward women’s empowerment in Uganda.
  • Uganda:  With two other international partners, we are designing and completing a community needs assessment for a remote area of Uganda, near the Rwenzori Mountains.
  • Haiti:  We are providing technical assistance to a South African-based NGO creating a water ambulance and fishery livelihood program in Haiti.
  • US:  We are developing tailored training for disaster response and medical mission teams on International Humanitarian Response Architecture as well as international guidelines and standards.  The team may deploy with the same amount of personnel, resources, and supplies but their value is maximized for better patient care and referral, improved efficiency, and less waste.
  • Stay tuned; we have more in the pipelines….
