About Cure Violence Global
Cure Violence Global (CVG) is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization (NGO), led by Gary Slutkin, M.D., former head of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Intervention Development Unit, and Professor of Epidemiology and International Health at the University of Illinois/Chicago School of Public Health. Dr. Slutkin created the Cure Violence health model, an epidemiological approach to violence reduction and prevention, as a program of the School of Public Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2000. Due to the overwhelming domestic and international demand for adaptation and replication of the approach, CVG was established as an independent NGO in 2019 with offices in downtown Chicago and off-site personnel located in several other cities.
CVG is a teaching, training, research, assessment, and project management organization focused on a public health approach to violence prevention. The Cure Violence health model is used by more than 50 communities in the U.S., as well as in countries ranging from El Salvador to South Africa to Syria. Cities and organizations implementing the Cure Violence health model regularly experience reductions in violence within the firs...t year ranging from 40-70% and greater reductions in subsequent years. CVG provides cities and community organizations with the training and technical assistance needed to effectively implement the Cure Violence approach, with a current focus on three global regions: the United States, Latin America, and the Middle East/North Africa.
CVG is also co-leading a movement to treat violence as a health problem. This effort aims to fundamentally shift the discourse on and approach to violence from the prevailing criminal justice paradigm to a health-based understanding and approach by activating voices and resources throughout our comprehensive health system and establishing violence prevention as a health sector responsibility and imperative.
CVG is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes applicants of all races, ethnicities, religions, genders, gender identities, and sexual orientations.
