About the AIC-CURE Children’s Hospital of Kenya

CURE Kenya was Africa’s first orthopedic teaching hospital when it opened in Kijabe in 1998. Each year it performs over 2,500 life-changing reconstructive and orthopedic surgeries for children suffering from treatable disabilities. The teaching hospital has 56 beds and three operating rooms. CURE International uses this facility to multiply its efforts by partnering with The College of Surgeons of East, Central, and Southern Africa (COSECSA) to serve as a regional learning institution by implementing an orthopedic pediatric training program at the residency and fellowship levels. In addition to world-class clinical service, CURE Kenya ministers to the emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their communities. The African Inland Church (AIC) provided the initial land for the hospital premise as a gift to the people of Kenya.
