Cure Violence: Treating violence like a disease

Cure Violence is an organization using a public health approach to eliminate violence by treating violence as an infectious disease.

Cure Violence stops the spread of violence in communities by using the methods and strategies associated with disease control – detecting and interrupting conflicts, identifying and treating the highest risk individuals, and changing social norms – resulting reductions in violence of 40% to 70%.
