Bringing Paediatric Expertise Into The Areas That Need It Most
We currently support paediatric healthcare volunteers in remote and rural Australian communities, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu.
Current Project Locations
Papua New Guinea is located north of the Australian mainland; the country’s geography is diverse and, in places, extremely rugged. A spine of mountains, the New Guinea Highlands, runs the length of the island of New Guinea. It is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world.
Taking Paediatrics Abroad facilitates telemedicine consultations for children in remote Australian Aboriginal communities.
Taking Paediatrics Abroad connects Australian doctors, nurses and allied healthcare professionals with colleagues in low-resource settings.
Children born into poverty are almost twice as likely to die before the age of five as those from wealthier families.
Help us improve health for children and young people globally.
