What we aim to solve New!

Around the world, children with physical disabilities go untreated—not because we lack the knowledge or ability to treat them, but because they lack access to care, either because of their financial situation or because of a lack or medical providers or both. CURE seeks to change that by both treating children now, through our charitable hospitals and partner treatment locations, and by establishing training programs to develop a greater supply of surgeons and medical professionals trained and equipped to meet the needs of children with physical disabilities.

CURE seeks to treat children with correctable disabilities, to counter the stigma of disability in the communities we serve, and to train medical professionals to increase the availability of treatment for physical disabilities.

CURE seeks to establish and maintain surgical teaching hospitals, where children with correctable disabilities can receive care, at little or no cost, and where medical professionals can be trained. In addition, CURE seeks to partner with local governments and other NGOs to establish partner treatment locations where services for children with correctable disabilities can be expanded and where training can take place. Throughout the entire network, CURE seeks to also educate, inform, and provide counseling to help stigma and the effects of stigma in the communities we serve.

CURE has established and maintains 10 charity hospitals where treatment and training are able to take place, along with partnerships with local ministries of health, NGOs, and universities to expand treatment and training beyond our own centers to other partner treatment locations, now in 29 countries worldwide. Throughout our network, we also inform, educate, and counsel those who have been stigmatised because of their disability as well as the communities in which we serve to change local attitudes towards those with disabilities.

CURE closely monitors metrics for the procedures we provide, the children we reach, and the medical professionals we train. We also track statistics as reported by organizations like the UN on the number of children with disabilities in the areas we serve.

From our founding in 1996 through June 30, 2017, CURE
hospitals have performed more than 175,000 procedures,
more than 102,000 children have been treated at
CURE clubfoot clinics, and surgeons trained by CURE
have performed more than 8,000 procedures to treat
hydrocephalus and spina bifida.
