About the Hospital

Moussa, before and after healing at CURE MalawiCURE Malawi is a 66-bed teaching hospital that specializes in treating the orthopaedic needs of children and adults. The facility was opened in 2002 and serves children with physical disabilities regardless of their ethnic background or religious affiliation.

The hospital also has special expertise in total hip and knee replacement surgery, making it one of the few places where this surgery is available in Sub-Saharan Africa. The hospital treats a wide range of orthopaedic conditions including clubfoot, burn contractures, osteomyelitis, and other acquired or congenital conditions. In addition, CURE Malawi also provides physiotherapy and chiropractic services.

The Beit Trust, a UK-based charity, provided support for the construction of the hospital as a gift to the people of Malawi. Thanks to its ability to meet a wide variety of needs for both children and adults, CURE Malawi is a unique and valuable asset to Sub-Saharan Africa.


Orthopaedic Clinical Officer Training

CURE Malawi maintains an orthopaedic clinical officer training program. This program trains nurses to work as orthopaedic physician extenders to serve outlying areas. The hospital also conducts monthly mobile clinics to identify children in remote areas who can be treated at the hospital and to provide follow-up care to those who have received surgery.
