The Women's and Children's Health Network supports research activity within the organisation through a number of different avenues.
On this page:
Generous support is given in the form of research project grants and a number of scholarships, fellowships and other awards. In particular, the Women's and Children's Hospital Foundation is a key supporter of research at WCHN. Established in 1989, the WCH Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation governed by a Board of Directors and incorporated under the Associations Incorporations Act 1985.
The WCH Foundation is the charity for the benefit of the Women’s and Children’s Hospital. It works in partnership with the South Australian community to support the Hospital and achieve positive long-term outcomes for women, babies and children. The Foundation's vision is to advance the health and wellbeing of women and children through an ongoing commitment to providing excellence in medical and health care and funding ground-breaking research.
The Women's and Children's Hospital Foundation is currently undertaking a Research Strategy Review which is expected to be completed around September 2021. In view of this, there will be no call in 2021 for applications for any of the awards listed below. For further information contact Jane Scotcher, CEO, Women's and Children' Hospital Foundation.
