The RBWH Foundation Coronavirus Action Fund was established in March 2020 to fund Australia’s brightest minds to join the race against COVID-19.
The RBWH Foundation Coronavirus Action Fund, since its inception, has focused on management of this deadly virus, reducing its severity in patients, COVID-19 treatments, and assisting healthcare professionals to provide the very best in patient care during times of social distancing and high stress.
The fund proudly supports the Australasian COVID-19 Trial (ASCOT). The focus of ASCOT is to evaluate treatments that reduce mortality or the need for mechanical ventilation in hospitalised but not yet critically ill patients.
