CMMB Global Health Volunteer Program
Goal of Program
CMMB is an international NGO providing long-term, co-operative medical and development aid to communities affected by poverty and unequal access to healthcare. CMMB’s Volunteer Program facilitates year-round opportunities for students and professionals from a variety of fields. Our International Volunteer Program addresses the critical need for professionals in areas that lack sufficient resources for quality preventive and curative health services, especially for women and children. Thousands of individuals have helped us develop and implement community health interventions, provide clinical health services, conduct research, develop communications content, and provide administrative support to our offices. In our New York City office volunteers contribute to operational and programmatic projects. The goal of our Volunteer Program is to support New York departments, country teams and local partners by finding meaningful placements for interns and volunteers to support a pattern of sustainable development.
