Our Key Impact Areas
Revolutionizing treatment and care through research
Canada’s children’s hospitals are at the forefront of every major medical advancement affecting the health of Canada’s kids. Research has propelled significant advances in technology and genetics that have lead to treatments that are less invasive, less harmful to growing bodies and more effective. We are working on higher survival rates, improved outcomes and better quality of life for children and youth with the most challenging health issues such as cancer, epilepsy, diabetes, congenital heart defects and life-threatening allergies.
Your contributions support researchers who uncover new cures and gentler treatments through ground-breaking research and clinical trials.
Right care. Right place. Right time.
Excellent paediatric care should be the experience of every Canadian youth and child at every point in the continuum of care. Canada’s children’s hospitals are working on improving access to healthcare and health information in every corner of every province.
Your support helps deliver the best care possible at every touchpoint, including frontline paediatric training and education, as well as new partnerships, technologies and healthcare delivery models, telemedicine, and satellite centres for community health.
Creating healing environments.
We know scientifically that children have better health outcomes when they are treated in child-friendly environments, which includes unique equipment and support for the whole family.
Programs and spaces designed with the whole family in mind will generate better outcomes for patients, support dignity and privacy, and help keep families stable during stressful and challenging times.
Your donations support therapies, spaces and equipment that are designed for the specific needs of children and youth, such as child-centred and youth-oriented programs, family-centred facility design, and adaptable equipment and technology.
