Cure Kids is the leading child health research charity, with a mission to improve the health of children through research and its outcomes.

What we do

With the incredible support of New Zealand, Cure Kids have been funding ground-breaking research for the past 45 years. Since 1971, we have invested more than $38 million into research which has helped shape and change the way children who live with serious diseases and health conditions are diagnosed and treated.

Some of the health research projects we have funded, or are currently funding include inherited heart conditions, childhood cancers, cystic fibrosis, sudden unexpected death in infancy, childhood cancers, stillbirth, burns, and mental health, among many others.

The outcomes of Cure Kids-funded medical research are everywhere, and thousands of us are alive and healthier today because of them. But we need your help to do so much more. There is vital medical research that needs to be done, yet is stalled, simply due to lack of funding.

With your help this Red Nose Day, we’re determined to change this and continue to make a difference to the health of children.

C’mon New Zealand, join us and get REDiculous this Red Nose Day for the kids you know who need a cure.
