it helps us make a big difference
Since 1990, the Telethon Kids Institute has played a critical role in improving the health and wellbeing of children and their families in the Western Australian community and beyond.
Today, Telethon Kids is one of Australia’s leading medical research institutes. Our researchers have contributed to discoveries that are making a difference for babies, kids, teens, mums and dads, families, and communities.
Through your generosity, the impact of Telethon Kids can be felt around the world – through research that uncovers how and why kids get sick and ways to make them better; through the translation of research into better policies, programs, services and treatments to tackle the complex challenges facing kids and families today; and through training the next generation of child health researchers.
We're working hard to save and improve the lives of children, though we can’t do it alone.
