Cure Violence envisions a world without violence. Cure Violence is guided by a clear understanding that violence is a health issue, and that individuals and communities can change for the better, that community partners and strategic partnerships are keys to success and that rigorous, scientific, professional ways of working are essential for effectiveness. Cure Violence employs street and hospital level intervention techniques based on a public health approach. Cure Violence works by interrupting the transmission of retaliatory violence through mediation and conflict resolution techniques, facilitating behavior change by individuals identified as high-risk for committing violence through connections to resources and ongoing support, and organizing community members to change social norms towards a non-violent culture.
