Cure Kids have been funding child health research since the 1970’s. Back then, we were known as The National Children’s Health Research Foundation, but, what has remained constant is a steadfast dedication to improving children’s health. This is captured in our vision – a healthy childhood for everyone.

A recent independent impact evaluation of a history of Cure Kids-supported research, systematically demonstrated that Cure Kids funding is delivering measurable benefits to the health of children. The findings illustrate the significant role that Cure Kids plays as a leading funder of child health research in New Zealand.

The impact has been wide-ranging, from understanding hormonal and metabolic factors involved in intrauterine growth restriction in unborn babies, through to developing a method for screening new born babies for cystic fibrosis, allowing for efficient and effective treatment before irreversible damage to the lungs occurs. Cure Kids funding has also contributed to preventing approximately 200 sudden unexpected deaths in infancy (cot deaths) annually in New Zealand.

We are immensely proud to reach our 45-year milestone, and would be thrilled if you could join us for this celebration.
