Core Values

Everything we do at the Human Milk Institute (HMI) is inspired by a set of core values we share with each other and the people we collaborate with.

We are committed to the highest standards in our work and let data lead the way.


We believe in selflessly supporting the global community, especially the most vulnerable among us.
