Patient Identification and Referral

In every country of operation, CURE works to ensure that every child with a treatable disability can reach their full potential through God’s hope and healing.

In the countries that CURE serves, there are approximately nine million children living with disabilities, many of them with conditions that are surgically treatable. CURE seeks to identify these children and their families through patient recruitment and national advocacy efforts focused on reaching the most disadvantaged populations.

CURE’s focus is exclusively on children with disabilities who are more vulnerable because of poverty or lack of access to adequate healthcare. Each hospital in the CURE network has developed a mobile clinic outreach strategy. These mobile clinics and outreach events are critical in CURE’s efforts to collaborate with local churches, communities, and leaders. Through these mobile clinics and outreach events, CURE staff members identify patients for treatment, raise awareness about disabilities and the principles of accessibility and inclusion, and share the gospel.

What are the outcomes of successful patient identification and referral?

Children, caregivers, and communities gain awareness about healthcare options that can help prevent treatable disabilities from becoming permanent conditions.

Pastors and church leaders are equipped with a biblical understanding of disability and with the tools necessary to respond to the needs of people with disabilities.
