During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for urgent funds has increased. Now more than ever, Toronto General and Toronto Western hospitals need your support.
A vaccine is bringing hope for a brighter future, but the fight against COVID-19 isn’t over.
UHN has been a healthcare leader throughout the pandemic and we continue to advocate for frontline workers, engage in public health task forces and conduct lifesaving COVID-19 research.
As we enter a new phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, our commitment to making lives better for our patients and frontline staff is stronger than ever.
Help us turn hope into action. Together, we can end COVID-19.
We’ve established an emergency COVID-19 fund to support the highest-priority needs of UHN during the COVID-19 pandemic including:
This is of utmost importance for UHN. We’re raising funds to ensure our healthcare heroes are protected and cared for, and have the right supplies, equipment and support they need to fight the pandemic.
As Canada’s number-one research hospital, we’re uniquely positioned to generate new knowledge that will uncover solutions to COVID-19. We’re raising funds to drive forward a number of research projects that are working to:
- Develop new, faster, more accessible diagnostic testing and screening methods for COVID-19
- Identify and test the efficacy of novel treatment options for COVID-19
- Generate new interventions to help healthcare workers in their battle against COVID-19
- Uncover the risk factors for severe COVID-19 and model the disease trajectory
- Evaluate the impact of the pandemic on different patient populations
- Understand how COVID-19 has affected frontline health professionals physically and mentally
With this valuable information, we’ll be able to limit the spread of COVID-19, improve COVID-19 patient outcomes and help our healthcare workers navigate the pandemic – turning hope into action.
We’re accepting gift-in-kind donations based on current needs, which are changing daily. If you’re interested in donating supplies, please email [email protected].
