Murdoch Children's is tackling COVID-19 for kids and families

The immediate priority of Murdoch Children’s Research Institute is to understand how we can mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the health and wellbeing of children and the community – now and into the future.

At Murdoch Children's, we recognise the difficulties parents faced when supporting children and adolescents during lockdown and isolation. Over the last few years, our children and young people experienced huge restrictions in their capacity to socialise, learn, play and develop.

Our ongoing response to COVID-19 draws upon the breadth and depth of our COVID-19 research and our deep understanding of children, young people, families and their communities.

As COVID-19 evolves towards a transition point, Murdoch Children’s strives toward improving the global understanding of the effects of the virus.
