ENGAGE WITH US

We are talking about a fundamentally bilingual (French and English) humanitarian association called GLOHEALTH Organization (GHO) working in the health and well-being sector in general, and which, for the official launch of its activities, launches an extensive membership campaign with the aim of mobilising the maximum number of human resources to achieve its objectives (the satisfaction of the general interest with the population and for the population).

Founded in Cameroon in 2018 as World Medical Students (WMS), and incorporated in Canada in May 2022, GHO is a non-profit, non-political, non-denominational, gender, ethnicity, race, nationality, profession, religion, residence, rank and social class association with legal personality.

GHO is also and above all a team of young students (professionals and non-health professionals) dynamic and hyper-motivated coming from all walks of life, and having decided to pool their knowledge-to build a vast network of multidisciplinary skills (medical and extra-medical) to be used for the search for practical, effective, efficient, prompt but above all sustainable solutions, aimed at solving problems related to Public health and well-being, in particular the well-being of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged sections of society.

The non-profit Organization, GHO has a dual purpose: On one hand, the facilitation and optimization of the training of health professionals through a pooling of various theoretical and practical experiences (“Knowledge and experience sharing”). On the other hand, it fights by all means, for the progressive improvement of living conditions and above all, of the life expectancy of the local and urban populations of Canada, Cameroon, Africa, and the entire world; while providing the latter with products and services under the object.

The registered office of the Organization is located in Ottawa, capital of the Canada, Ontario Province.

Membership in GHO may be made directly at the time of membership campaigns or at any other favourable time, either directly at the head office or through a member of the Executive Board or the Board of Directors; or even online on the official WMS website.

It is interesting, and even advantageous to join GLOHEALTH Organization for several reasons. As the list is not exhaustive and subject to each making his own idea. You may join GHO for:
