MBK was first established in 1999, as a nascent entity dedicated to the prevention, care, and treatment of persons infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). MBK’s HIV prevention services focused on designing and delivering an innovative range of educational and training programs in
public health, social policy, action research, information technology, advocacy, coalition development and capacity building. Through its extensive experience, MBK built its commitment to HIV prevention among racial and ethnic minority populations as evident through its service to over 20,000 constituents, nationwide, who represent community-based organizations, faith- based organization, institutions of higher learning, and community lay persons.
As it exists today, MBK is an experienced community-based organization working to eliminate health disparities among underserved, uninsured/underinsured and, other vulnerable populations through health education, health promotion, technical assistance, policy and environmental systems changes, and other health equity approaches. We were able to expand these services with the addition of Open Arms HealthCare Center. MBK’s efforts have expanded to include a wealth of health issues, including. cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, tobacco cessation, and cancer, which has systemically transformed MBK from a grassroots organization into a community-based leader that strives to change the health status of Americans one community at a time.
