Zahli, age 4      In Australia, child health has come a long way – but we still have a long way to go. On
cystic fibrosis   average every day, five Australian babies and children die.
                  One hundred years ago, children were dying from gastroenteritis, diarrhoea, influenza
                  and other conditions that thankfully today are often easily treatable. There are more
                  ways to help sick and injured children get better, faster – we just need to find them.
                  Today’s children face an unprecedented crisis. Due to lifestyle diseases and obesity
                  this may be the first generation with an expected life span shorter than that of their
                  All Australian children should have the best possible health care available. With help
                  from the community and business, Children’s Hospital Foundations Australia can help
                  more sick and injured children and their families.
                  We need to raise the funds to enable children to have the best possible chance of
                  recovery through improved treatments and cures.
                  Your support is vital in helping more sick children.

   Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, Western Australia
   Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation, Melbourne, Victoria
   Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation, Queensland

Vision – engaging Australia to help little lives shine.
Mission – Children’s Hospital Foundations Australia is the national fundraising partnership
of our children’s hospitals dedicated to excellence in child health.
                   what we do
                   Funds raised nationally through Children’s Hospital Foundations
                   Australia are divided equally between the five partners and are
                   directed into the areas of greatest need in each hospital.
                   The key areas of funding include research, services and equipment.

                   As leaders in paediatric care, our hospital partners undertake ground-
                   breaking research across all areas of children’s health, with projects
                   ranging from complex laboratory investigations to bedside studies.
                   Areas of research include burn recovery techniques, childhood
                   cancer, respiratory diseases, viruses, child advocacy and protection,
                   growth and nutrition and pain free treatment alternatives.

                   Vital funds are utilised to provide services that both improve the
                   quality of life whilst in hospital and provide essential support services
                   for families of sick children.
                   Funded services include specialised staff, volunteer support,
                   education, entertainment, parent/patient support services and capital
                   and minor works.

                   Our children’s hospitals are at the forefront of paediatric care and
                   treatment in Australia. Assisting the thousands of dedicated medical
                   staff who care for our children every day is a vast range of life-saving
                   medical equipment – from insulin syringes to state-of-the-art cardiac
                   monitors. Each Foundation operates a “wish list” for their respective
                   hospital, where funds donated to Children’s Hospital Foundations
                   Australia can be used to purchase equipment that can make a
                   difference in the care of sick and injured children through faster
                   outcomes, with less pain.
