Cure Violence is currently in the planning stages of implementation in Barranquilla, Colombia and Recife, Brazil.  A program site in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago opened in early 2015.

While the characteristics of violence in the Middle East differ, the root causes remain the same – it is a learned behavior that can be unlearned. Cure Violence has adapted it model to treat violence in the Middle East using credible messengers who interrupt violence, but adapting the model to work in a different environment. Cure Violence recently concluded its work in Iraq and is working with civil society groups (Non-Violent Peaceforce and Madani) in Western Syria to reduce violence.
