About the Hospital
In 2004, CURE signed an agreement with the Zambian Ministry of Health to operate a paediatric teaching hospital specializing in the treatment and care of children living with physical disabilities. The Beit Trust, a UK-based charity, provided £1million to support construction of the hospital as a centennial gift to the people of Zambia. The Zambian government donated a 60-acre plot of land for the hospital site. CURE Zambia opened in 2006.
CURE Zambia is one of the few hospitals in Zambia able to adequately address the surgical needs of disabled children in the country. The hospital campus is comprised of six buildings, housing 45 patient beds in the children’s ward and 16 beds in the private patients ward. The hospital also houses a chapel and spiritual centre, three operating theatres, an outpatient clinic, an administrative building and a general services building. Services at the hospital are focused on paediatric orthopaedics, neurosurgery, and reconstructive plastic surgery.
Through the work done at our hospital and at various mobile clinics, CURE Zambia is addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those who need help most.

The International Foundation for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (IF) has been a great partner in CURE’s efforts to eliminate untreated hydrocephalus in the developing world. Along with directly supporting CURE’s work, they also supply the shunts used for hydrocephalus surgeries in Uganda, Zambia, and our CURE Hydrocephalus treatment locations.
Since autumn of 2006, in collaboration with Smile Train, CURE has developed cleft lip and cleft palate surgical training programs in most of CURE’s hospitals worldwide. These programs not only provide surgery for children and counselling for them and their families, but also train national surgeons in reconstructive surgery.
