Burundi clubfoot program, new hospital counseling coordinator

by on Thursday, June 2, 2016 at 11:29 am

As the activities of the Burundi Clubfoot Program continue to increase, we had a blessing of a new worker who will be our Counseling Coordinator. Her name is Angelique Iribagiza, and she started in April. As it is the culture and the value in CURE International, after her recruitment she benefited with a two weeks training in Rwanda. She did theory and on field practices including supervision and counseling.

While in Rwanda, after her two weeks training we had a discussion on her general view of the program and Rwanda.

Healing for tomorrow: CURE and medical training

by on Tuesday, December 29, 2015 at 6:00 am

The heart of CURE is to bring these children the healing they desperately need. We do this every day through hospitals and specialty programs in 30 countries worldwide. Meeting this immediate need, though, is not enough. The deficit of available medical care, combined with the growing population in the world’s most underserved countries, means we need a greater pool of medical professionals to be able to meet those needs for more children.

The important event of the week was the COSECSA Spine Course. The course was the first of its kind for COSECSA. There were participants from eight African countries – Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, Malawi, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania – attending.

Challenges, Changes, and Confirmations in Uganda

There have been many changes in the hospital since I was here three years ago. There are new buildings, new staff, new ways of handling the patient population (which is growing!).

Training is complementary to academic education, clinical research, and expert patient care. In fact, training […]
