We are currently researching into

Rheumatic Heart Disease

New Zealand and Australia have the shared and unenviable status as developed countries that still have high rates of rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease. Pasifika children are about 40 times more likely to be hospitalised for rheumatic fever and Maori children are about 20 times more likely than non-Maori/non-Pacific children. Cure Kids is currently working with world-leading researchers to develop a coordinated programme of innovative research that aims to help end rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease in New Zealand.
