Content on Cure4Kids is developed by experts in the care of children with cancer, various blood disorders, and catastrophic conditions such as HIV/AIDS. While most content is provided in English, there are also educational materials available in Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, and Arabic. In addition to seminars and courses, Cure4Kids provides specialized areas for groups to hold web-based meetings with audio, share documents, and discuss the clinical treatment of children with cancer. Over 300 regional and international groups meet regularly on Cure4Kids to discuss difficult cases. Our future plans include the continued expansion of our content, the addition of improved collaboration tools, and expanding collaborations with leading societies, hospitals, and research institutions.

Cure4Kids is a unique resource designed to support the needs of a specialized population. In the words of one of one of our registered users, a physician in Morocco, “It is incredible how Cure4Kids has become essential in our daily work. It is really innovative and very useful for people who are working in settings with limited resources like ours where access to information is not an easy task.”
