Cure Kids funds vital research into lifethreatening childhood illnesses, like Asthma, Diabetes and Childhood Cancers
Cure Kids funds outcome driven research which provides better treatments, better quality of life and sometimes an extended life expectancy.
And ultimately, our goal is of course to find cures for the 20,000 NZ children who life with a life threatening illness.
Cure Kids (previously Child Health Research Foundation) was established over 30 years ago to address the lack of research into life-threatening childhood illnesses in New Zealand.
Since then, we’ve invested over $21m in medical research. This has helped save hundreds of young lives and has improved the quality of life for thousands of children.
