Caribbean Medical Mission (CMM) is a non-profit organization, registered as a 501(c)(3), with a core mission to enhance the health and welfare of marginalized communities across the Caribbean region.

These include Pediatrics, Internal Medicine addressing ailments such as diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, pain management, as well as other health conditions, an Eye Clinic catering to vision correction and eye-related disorders, Gynecology focusing on women’s health and pap smears, Dentistry services, and Psychological consultations for mental health concerns.

    This is timely! The organizers should be commended for this initiative and foresight. This is an excellent opportunity that should benefit most of our citizens, especially those in the outer districts experiencing challenges in having their medical concerns addressed.
    We look forward to learning more about this organization during their stay here. Thank you for your service and unwavering commitment.
