Parent Organization: Allocations Board

This is the overarching Global Brigades organization for all Global Brigades Issue Areas at Boston Univeristy.  We currently have Global Medical, Global Public Health, Global Water and Global Business chapters at Boston University.  Any new issue area looking to form at BU must work with this overarching organization to do so.

Global Brigades is the world’s largest student-led global health and sustainable development organization. It is made up of international nonprofit affiliates that mobilize student volunteers and professionals to empower communities in developing countries with programs that improve quality of life while respecting local culture. 


Since 2005, more than 4,000 volunteers from 110 university chapters in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Ireland, traveled to provide health and economic development solutions to more than 100,000 beneficiaries through teams in Panama and Honduras.
