Every Woman Deserves a Healthy Pregnancy and Every Child Deserves a Healthy Start – No Matter Where They Live.

At Kirk Humanitarian, we are dedicated to improving global health through a focus on women’s nutrition during pregnancy. Because when a woman receives the nutrients she needs during pregnancy, her health is better safeguarded, and her child is more likely to have the best start in life. 

The Global Need

Around the world, many women are unable to get the nutrition they need during pregnancy from their diets alone. So we help the highestquality prenatal vitamins and minerals – United Nations International Multiple Micronutrient Antenatal Preparation Multiple Micronutrient Supplements (UNIMMAP MMS) – reach women who would otherwise not have access and we support NGOs and governments as they launch MMS programs. 

What We Do

Guided by evidence and a dedication to equity, we work to bring UNIMMAP MMS to women around the globe and improve uptake. We donate UNIMMAP MMS to NGOs and governments; help create a strong, growing market for it; and drive implementation research and advocacy for UNIMMAP MMS.    

15 Essential Micronutrients

We are helping produce UNIMMAP (United Nations International Multiple Micronutrient Antenatal Preparation) MMS that meets rigorous quality and internationally accepted regulatory standards. The UNIMMAP MMS we produce with our partners at CPC is USP-verified and now Halal-certified for use by Muslim women.

Our Reach

Billion Doses


Since 2002, we have purchased and donated more than 3.8 billion MMS doses in 80 countries, serving more than 20 million women. And our reach is growing. In 2020 alone, we reached 5.5 million pregnant women with bottles of UNIMMAP MMS. And in 2021, we will reach 8.4 million more pregnant women. Our investments pave the course for women around the world to have access to UNIMMAP MMS for decades to come.

It is an injustice that all women don’t have access to multiple micronutrient supplements (MMS). It’s time for every woman to be able to access MMS – not just those living in high-income countries.
