Ignite is a student run global health organisation and is linked to AMSA Global Health, targeting global health education at Medical Students. We work with global health groups all around Australia and overseas to create sustainable health initiatives and introduce the medically oriented to education and advocacy within the field. We also run many events and support a wide range of subcommittees, which cover specific interest areas in further detail. 

Ignite was founded in 2004 by a group of passionate and motivated Monash University medical students, and has since continued to grow and expand our reach. We run a variety of events and provide educational resources that are accessible to all students!
