About the organisation

MedGlobal is a humanitarian and health NGO serving vulnerable communities around the world by providing innovative, free, and sustainable healthcare. Our health services support refugees, displaced persons, and other marginalized communities in conflict-affected and low-resource settings.

MedGlobal works to build the capacity of healthcare systems within countries affected by armed conflict, natural disasters, a lack of resources, and climate change. We work with national healthcare systems and individual hospitals and health facilities to design training and education for their healthcare workers, to improve physical infrastructure, policies, and protocols, and to provide the medications, medical supplies, equipment, and technology that they need to treat their patients. MedGlobal’s culturally diverse teams respond to the world’s humanitarian crisis by partnering with communities to provide innovative, sustainable, and dignified healthcare.

MedGlobal began working in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh in 2017 following the exodus of approximately 742,000 Rohingya from Myanmar to Bangladesh. Our work in Bangladesh has focused on improving health outcomes of the Rohingya population in Bangladesh and the Cox’s Bazar host community.

Since 2018, MedGlobal has operated a primary health post providing comprehensive care to Rohingya refugees in Camp 4 in Cox's Bazar. The health post has provided over 150,000 consultations for Rohingya refugees. In 2020, MedGlobal’s programs in Bangladesh served over 189,000 beneficiaries, provided support for 8 health facilities, and provided over 39,000 free health consultations at our health post. In October 2021, we opened a new health post in Camp 24, in order to expand these services to additional Rohingya refugees.

SRHR publications/research

In 2019, in conjunction with Center for Global Health, MedGlobal published a report on Addressing the HIV Crisis Among Venezuelan Migrants in Colombia. The report can be found here:

In Bangladesh, we are conducting research now into SRHR and women’s health gaps within the communities Naogaon and Joypuhat through targeted questionnaires and focus group discussions; educational campaigns will be designed based on identified needs and then cascaded through the communities of Naogaon and Joypurhat, Bangladesh.
