The Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA) is a non-profit professional membership association for milk banks in Canada, Mexico and the United States and as such sets the standards and guidelines for donor milk banking for those areas. MMBNT is one of 11 non-profit donor human milk banks in North America.
