About the Hospital

Abaynesh, before and after treatment at CURE EthiopiaCURE Ethiopia is a paediatric orthopaedic teaching hospital located in Ethiopia’s capital city, Addis Ababa. Opened in 2008, the hospital is a state-of-the-art complex that provides modern medical and surgical care to physically disabled children. As Ethiopia consistently ranks among the poorest countries in the world, with few of its citizens having access to medical care, there is a great need for this level of care.

In addition, CURE Ethiopia fills a critical need as an orthopaedic training site in the country, providing didactic and clinical training in paediatric and advanced orthopaedic techniques, and is an international COSECSA-accredited training site.

Through a combination of in-hospital care, mobile clinics, and clubfoot clinics, CURE Ethiopia is providing superior care for the children of Ethiopia.
