Global Health Volunteers and Interns (various positions available)
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.
We believe in a world in which 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 believe in people.
We strive to live out our core values of collaboration, love, excellence, and respect every day. We provide our volunteers with a meaningful volunteer package, and the opportunities to learn, grow, and leave a longstanding legacy. We especially encourage all persons of diverse backgrounds to apply.

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. Internships will be remote until further notice. In the meantime, we are interviewing for remote service to support the COVID response with urgently needed skills.
