CMMB

We believe in a world in which every
human life is valued, and health and human dignity are shared by all.
We believe that access to quality
healthcare is a basic human right. For more than 100 years, we have worked with
global partners to deliver locally sustainable, quality healthcare solutions to
women, children and their communities.

We’re ready to make it 100 more.

We believe change starts with her.
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. We’re making an impact – learn more.
Building around a new CHAMPS
(CHildren And Mother PartnershipS) model, CMMB will work at both the community
and clinical levels in these targeted communities to strengthen health services
and address the leading causes of maternal and child death. In addition, CMMB
will expand its volunteer program to strengthen health care delivery in
CHAMPS-supported facilities and will engage with the pharmaceutical industry to
help meet the needs of CHAMPS communities and facilities.
CMMB is committed to learning and
evolving in order to successfully achieve impact in its strategy and will have
strong vertical and horizontal team structures in alignment to the global
strategy in order to encourage accountability, communication, and effective
project management.
We strive to live out our core values
of collaboration, love, excellence and respect every day. We provide our
employees with a competitive salary and a meaningful benefits package, with
opportunities to learn and grow. We especially encourage all persons of diverse
