Our region has 60% of the world's people, 30%
of whom are children under the age of 15. Each year millions of
children die from communicable and non-communicable diseases.
Reducing child mortality and morbidity in
resource poor countries of our region is RCH International's core
commitment. We are passionate about the right of all children to
enjoy the highest attainable standards of health.
Established in 1998, RCH International has
developed a vibrant and growing international network, partnering
with recognized organizations similarly committed to our
rights-based approach to child health. We are an integral
department of The Royal Children's Hospital (RCH)
Melbourne. Co-located with the
University of Melbourne's
Department of Paediatrics and the Murdoch Children's Research
Institute, we draw on brands of extremely high international value
and integrity. RCH International has a unique focus
on hospital to hospital capacity building. Our projects help major
hospitals serving some of the neediest countries of our region to
improve the quality of their services.
RCH Melbourne and its campus partners have
technical resources of great depth, spanning all aspects of
clinical care, teaching and research in child and adolescent
health. RCH International extends the reach of these
resources to projects assisting hospitals in resource poor
countries of the Asia Pacific region.

high quality healthcare services for children and families.
