The Curamericas Global Story
Partner with underserved communities to make measurable and sustainable improvements in their health and wellbeing.
Bring Hope through Health: a world free of suffering from treatable and preventable causes
Nearly 5.9 million children will not see their fifth birthday due to preventable and treatable illnesses like pneumonia and diarrhea. We all know that good health directly affects education, income and family and community wellbeing, so Curamericas Global works hard to bring about sustainable changes to the healthcare system in the communities with whom we partner.
Curamericas depends on the support of individuals and organizations to provide lifesaving healthcare services and education where they are needed most. By becoming a supporter you are joining a group of compassionate and forward-thinking individuals who are dedicated to ending the unnecessary death of the world’s most vulnerable population, mothers, and children.

We prioritize those in greatest need and asserting that everyone should have access to quality healthcare, leading Curamericas Global to work in remote, often forgotten places.
We are committed to the use of evidence-based practices to achieve maximum health benefits for impoverished people and to demonstrate that these benefits have been achieved.
We give a helping hand to those who are suffering and dying of readily preventable or treatable conditions.

Sustainability in Action: Andean Rural Health Care (CSRA) becomes independent
In 1995, CSRA was incorporated legally in Bolivia with its own Board of Directors and non-profit statutes. Although both organizations remain close, the organizations are legally separate and CSRA is accountable directly to its Board of Directors. CSRA has a central office in La Paz, the Bolivian legislative capital.
