MMW aims to improve the health and well-being of rural and impoverished communities in developing countries by offering direct patient care and training integrative health workers and extended family members to manage chronic diseases, laying the foundation for these communities to incorporate preventive health care into their daily lives. Chronic disease is the dominant health burden in developing countries, greater even than communicable disease, and the most serious threat to the creation of healthy communities.
