For nearly one-hundred years, CMMB has maintained a strong connection with Haiti. Historically, CMMB's focus was primarily on the shipment of medicines and medical volunteers to hospitals and organizations in need of support. While this is still a major part of CMMB's work, we have provided significant public health programming and technical assistance throughout the country, since 2002, primarily in the areas of Maternal and Child Health (MCH), HIV/AIDS and Malaria.

CMMB has continued to define our path moving forward in Haiti.
