Global Health Volunteers and Interns (various positions available)
COVID update and work from home update:
CMMB has developed guidelines to inform the different aspects of preparedness and preventive measures we need to put in place for the reopening of our NYC Headquarters. These guidelines were developed based on the Employee Wellness Survey responses, the COVID-19 Task Force and external survey through the Humentum network. CMMB is still working from home to protect the health of its employees. It is likely that all NYC volunteer placements will follow this format until the end of 2020. In the meantime, we are interviewing for remote service to support the COVID response with urgently needed skills.

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 facilitates year-round opportunities for students and professionals to serve in our New York City office where they contribute to vital operational and programmatic projects in support of our global health initiatives. We have worked with thousands of interns and volunteers who help to develop and implement community health interventions, conduct research, develop communications content and build our donor base, and provide critical administrative support to the diverse teams in our offices. The ultimate goal of CMMB's Volunteer Program is to support our New York departments, country teams and local partners by finding meaningful placements for interns and volunteers who are committed to supporting a pattern of sustainable development. In addition, our International Volunteer Program addresses the critical need for professionals in South Sudan, Zambia, Kenya, Peru, and Haiti in areas that lack sufficient resources for quality preventive and curative health services, especially for women and children.
