The world has turned its attention to COVID-19, but deadly viruses such as Zika, malaria and Hepatitis C also need our support to find treatments and cures.

Zika and Malaria Viruses are Transmitted via Mosquitoes

Did you know malaria kills 400,000 children a year?

Nearly 120,000 babies are born each year with a Zika birth defect. And there are four million new Hepatitis C infections each year, including 10,000 in Australia.

That’s why The Hospital Research Foundation Group is proud to be a longtime supporter of research into virology and infection control which plays an important role in protecting our global communities.
