The Programme for Global Paediatric Research (PGPR) is an educator and a network facilitator; we bring together some of the brightest, most innovative minds from around the world to share information, teach others and to collaborate in order to improve health outcomes for children in developing countries.
PGPR was formed in 2004 with the initial goal of bringing the attention and research resources of paediatric researchers in high income countries to the health issues facing children in low and mid-income countries. Since then it has fostered relationships within the broad community of researchers and clinicians who are best able to lead the way in identifying and solving critical health problems facing children in developing countries. Now PGPR sits at the centre of this community, facilitating a collaborative, practical, evidence-based approach to effecting positive change in global child health. With PGPR's help networks of individuals and groups take the lead in moving discussion into action.
PGPR is based at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto, Canada and is a global ambassador for SickKids and its interest in helping children beyond the borders of Canada. We share SickKids' vision of Healthier Children. A Better World.
By functioning collaboratively and working with experts in other specialty areas, other disciplines, and–most importantly–with communities where children are at risk, it becomes possible for PGPR to facilitate meaningful strides toward reducing childhood illness and death.
