Global Medicine Network

A free and open service for the international health community.

The Global Medicine Network was created to establish personal and professional contacts among individuals and organizations working in international health and global medicine. The aim is to promote cooperative relationships in areas such as humanitarian service, medicine and supply donation, research, health education and visitor exchange. A primary goal of this website is to provide the mechanism by which members can personally contribute to the improvement of health conditions in underserved areas of the world.

By joining the Global Medicine Network you can find others with whom to exchange ideas, supplies, information, and equipment. As a member of the network you can also post notices about upcoming events like courses, lectures or meetings related to international health and tropical medicine. To illustrate some of the many ways in which this service can help you, please see our network examples. Join Now!

The Global Medicine Network is a free and open service of the Massachusetts Medical Society. For further information on the publications of the massachusetts medical society, please visit the New England Journal of Medicine website, or the Journal Watch newsletter series website.
