Children and families

We are committed to working with all sectors of the community that are supporting better health and wellbeing outcomes for children and families.

We do this by supporting primary and allied health providers to develop appropriate community-based programs, professional development courses, programs for health professionals and health advocacy campaigns.

We partner with stakeholders and consumers to help ensure that all families in the North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network region can access services that improve health, growth and development.

Generation Victoria (GenV)

Murdoch Children’s Research Institute is inviting parents and their newborns to take part in its GenV research project at hospitals across Victoria. Over two years, every Victorian family with a newborn baby will be invited to join GenV — one of the world’s largest children and parent research projects.

GenV aims to help solve problems like asthma, food allergies, obesity and mental illness.
