Supporting healthy lungs for life
Thanks to a decade-long partnership with Mineral Resources Limited (MinRes), PCHF is co-funding the Wal-yan Respiratory Research Centre at Perth Children’s Hospital.
As a highly valued corporate partner of the Foundation, MinRes generously came on board as the Principal Partner of Wal-yan’s BREATH (Building Respiratory Equity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health) team back in 2021.
Led by Prof. André Schultz, a Mineral Resources Fellow and renowned paediatric lung health researcher, the BREATH team has partnered with Aboriginal families and health services to roll out culturally appropriate health promotion campaigns in Toowoomba and Perth, aiming to raise awareness of the dangers of chronic wet cough in Aboriginal children.
Did you know? In the remote Kimberley region of WA, Aboriginal children have high rates of chronic wet cough, which is often a symptom of underlying infection that, if left untreated, can lead to permanent life-shortening lung disease.
With the support of MinRes, the BREATH team conducts crucial studies to measure the prevalence of chronic lung disease and designs and tests programs to improve the healthcare system, with the aim of reducing the burden of chronic lung disease in Aboriginal communities.
“Thanks to the dedicated support of MinRes, we are supporting the BREATH team’s vital research efforts to reduce the burden of chronic lung disease in Aboriginal communities,” – Carrick Robinson, PCHF CEO.
Over the past decade, MinRes has donated an incredible $4.6 million to PCHF to help WA kids get well and stay well. This includes:
- The world-first Rare Care Centre
- State-of-the-art equipment for PCH’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
- Move to Improve: a ground-breaking research project paving the way for Australia’s first clinical exercise service at PCH
The Wal-yan Respiratory Research Centre is a powerhouse partnership between Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation, Perth Children’s Hospital, and the Telethon Kids Institute.
We’re delighted to have MACA onboard as one of our corporate partners and are enormously grateful for their support.
MACA’s generosity has funded various projects so that WA kids can have the best possible care close to home.
We’re deeply grateful for MACA’s support for the state-of-the-art PCH Simulation Suite which trains clinicians in high-risk medical scenarios in a low-risk, safe environment.
The MACA funded Paediatric Simulation and Clinical Research Education Fellowship, now in its third year, is the only one of its kind in Western Australia. It promotes PCH as a world-class provider of medical simulation expertise with benefits flowing through to the children and families of WA through improved patient care.
Our much-valued partnership has spanned an incredible14 years. MACA has donated more than $1.2 million to help WA’s sick kids get well and stay well. This includes:
- The Paediatric Simulation and Clinical Research Education Fellowship
- “Lil MACA”, a young male simulation mannequin
- State-of-the-art neonatal transport equipment, vital for controlling the temperature of critically ill babies during transport throughout WA.
“MACA’s ongoing generosity is advancing the level of healthcare in WA helping our sickest children receive world-class care right here at home.” – Carrick Robinson, Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation CEO.
