Medical Donations Program

CMMB's Medical Donations Program responds to the dire shortage of quality medicines and primary healthcare in resource-poor countries. CMMB receives generous donations of high-quality medicines and other products from our partners in the pharmaceutical and medical supplies industries. CMMB then ships much needed medicines and supplies to locations worldwide, in response to requests from our in-country partners. CMMB is a founding member of the Partnership for Quality Medical Donations (PQMD) which is an alliance with private voluntary organizations and medical product manufacturers dedicated to raising the standards of medical donations to meet the needs for underserved populations and disaster victims around the world.

Population(s) Served
People with diseases and illnesses
Economically disadvantaged people

CMMB recruits licensed healthcare professionals, public health specialists, and other non-clinical volunteers, primarily from the US, to serve in CMMB’s country offices, CHAMPs communities, and local health facilities supported by CMMB and partners. These positions are for 6 months or longer and while the openings vary by country, we regularly recruit for a variety of medical and non-medical positions.

Population(s) Served
People with diseases and illnesses
Economically disadvantaged people

We call our Children and Mothers Partnerships initiative CHAMPS, because we believe in the transformative role of women in their communities and the potential for children to shape the future. A mother's devotion and determination can change the life of her children and the world. Launched in 2015, CHAMPS invests in communities for the long-term to see evidence-based, measurable change. The CHAMPS model is holistic and designed to change the lives of more than one million women, children, and their families worldwide, improving access to quality health care, nutrition, water and sanitation, economic development and greater gender equality.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Healthier Lives Worldwide

CMMB has been dedicated to helping the poor and those marginalized in society for over 100 years. Our founder, Dr. Paluel Flagg, first ministered to lepers in Haiti in the early 20th century and today we are a highly-respected global organization that has never wavered in our faith-based mission of service.

Despite the progress in global health, women and children living in developing countries continue to be among the most vulnerable. This motivates us to focus on improving their lives, and the lives of their communities.

Embracing the bond between our Catholic faith, values, and service to those most in need, CMMB is called to provide effective health solutions founded on love and respect for all.

Our Vision

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

Our Mission

Inspired by the example of Jesus, CMMB works in partnership globally to deliver locally sustainable, quality health solutions to women, children, and their communities.

Our Core Values:

Collaboration
To work in partnership for locally sustainable solutions

Love
To embrace and be compassionate towards all people

Excellence
To deliver sustainable, quality, and impactful results

Respect
To act always with integrity, and to value and honor the dignity of all

We believe in the transformative power of women to change their communities, and the potential for children to shape their own futures.

With the power to access healthcare services and infrastructure, they will live healthier lives. With the power of love, respect, and excellence, they will know human dignity. With the power of people and partnerships, we can and will change the world.

Access to quality healthcare is a basic human right. We partner globally to build locally sustainable systems to give all people what they need to reach their full potential for health. Our demonstrated commitment to women's and children's health includes clinical expertise, non-clinical health services, medical donations and skilled medical volunteers. Together, we have the capacity to improve the lives of women and children in the most under-resourced communities, where a lack of basic healthcare means needless suffering from preventable diseases and shortened lives.

CMMB launched our innovative Children And Mothers Partnerships (CHAMPS) model in 5 countries, leveraging our networks of partners and bringing health solutions to women and children. CHAMPS is an integrated series of interventions designed to create deep and systemic change. CHAMPS seeks to improve 5 key levers for healthy communities: 1. A well-functioning, accessible local health system; 2. Healthy pregnancies, safe deliveries, and healthy young children; 3. Increased nutrition and income through economic opportunities; 4. Access to safe water and sanitation; 5. Access to essential medicines.

Long-established relationships with partners across private, public and government sectors maximize impact as we work together toward shared goals. Our 110-year history, financial transparency, and excellent reputation strengthen all our partnerships, including those with host governments and Ministries of Health.

Support from leading pharmaceutical and medical supply companies deploy critical supplies and medications where they are needed most through our Medical Donations Program.

Strong institutional partnerships with universities and corporations open doors to a community of potential volunteers who bring passion and dedication to the field, and work with us to implement our programs effectively.

We are an international NGO providing long-term, community-based medical and development aid to communities affected by poverty and unequal access to healthcare. For over a century, we have worked to strengthen and support communities through healthcare programs and initiatives, the deployment of medicines and medical supplies, and the placement of volunteers. Now in our second century and as part of our new global strategic platform, we are focusing on health issues facing women, children, and adolescents. Our emergency relief program quickly responds to dangerous situations, from conflict to natural disasters, by supporting affected communities with donated medicines, volunteers, and medical personnel, and by meeting emergency medical needs at partner health facilities. We work in collaboration with hundreds of local and international partners to deliver sustainable health services in targeted communities within Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

In 2015-2016, we piloted CHAMPS, a core CMMB program, in Haiti, Kenya, Peru, South Sudan and Zambia, which demonstrated:
1. A cost-effective model
2. Sustainable, community-driven results
3. Impact of long-term investment
4. Power of partnerships leveraged across sectors

Our Core Areas of Work:
Responding to Global Emergencies
Achieving an AIDS-Free Generation
An Integrated Approach to Health: CHAMPS
Increasing Access to Medicine Worldwide
Expanding Global and Local Partnerships
Fostering Community Engagement Worldwide

We are committed to HIV care and treatment, and an AIDS-free generation.

We are scaling up our CHAMPS model. Our goal is to improve one million lives over the next five years.

We are working to continually expand our global partnerships to deliver medicine to those who need it most.

We are more clearly representing our vision, values and focus on improving the lives of women and children worldwide through our new visual identity.

We are recognized for our outstanding transparency and stewardship of resources.

Partnering with local communities, CMMB is transforming the lives of some of the world's most vulnerable women and children by tackling the deep-rooted causes of morbidity and mortality. Through our Children and Mothers Partnerships—or CHAMPS—we are providing life-saving medical care for pregnant women and newborns, and fighting disease and poverty. Working with our public and private partners, CMMB is saving lives and transforming communities.

How? We are currently working in eight CHAMPS sites through our five country offices. In these communities we're building and renovating health facilities and providing medical equipment. We're providing emergency transportation to save lives. We're enlisting volunteer doctors and nurses to build the capacity of local facilities and staff. We're providing essential medicines and supplies. We're training community health workers—trusted local partners who visit vulnerable families at home to teach moms how to keep their kids healthy. We're increasing access to safe water and sanitation. We're improving nutrition and livelihoods. And we've made a commitment to each community to keep on working together for the next 15 to 20 years.
