The Telethon Kids Institute's vision is to improve the health and wellbeing of children through excellence in research.
We want every child to have the very best opportunity to enjoy a happy and healthy childhood.
Our team of almost 600 dedicated researchers and support staff are passionate about discovering causes, cures and treatments for the illnesses and diseases that target our kids and young people. With top scientific minds and facilities, a reputation for being at the forefront of global child health research and a track record to prove it, Telethon Kids is world-class.
Yet we know that our work is even stronger when we work together. We are committed to collaboration.
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.
