Program Description

CMMB is an international NGO providing long-term, co-operative medical and development aid to communities affected by poverty and unequal access to healthcare.

For over a century, CMMB has worked to strengthen and support communities through healthcare programs and initiatives, the distribution of medicines and medical supplies, and the placement of volunteers.

CMMB’s Volunteer Program addresses the critical need for health service professionals in areas that lack sufficient resources for quality preventive and curative health services, especially for women and children.

Our Volunteer Program has placed thousands of licensed medical practitioners around the world to help develop and implement community health interventions, work at local hospitals and health facilities, conduct clinical training for host country counterparts, and deliver essential medicines and supplies.

The ultimate goal of CMMB's Volunteer Program is to support our country teams and local healthcare workers by sending volunteers that are dedicated to strengthening local health systems and supporting a pattern of sustainable development.

We believe in a world in which every human life is valued, and health and human dignity are shared by all.

We work tirelessly for women’s and children’s health because they are disproportionately affected by illness and poverty.

We know that healthy, educated, and empowered women are better able to raise healthy, educated and confident children, and that communities depend on their livelihoods.
