COVID-19: Public Health, Research and Careers at the Frontline
This COVID-19 trial will evaluate different treatments such as antiretroviral drugs and antimalarial drugs for COVID-19 patients in hospital. It is part of a multinational initiative called the Solidarity Trial which is being coordinated by the World Health Organization and supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research in an unprecedented level of global collaboration. Dr. Murthy studies severe infections and how best to manage critically ill patients.

We believe there’s nothing we can’t do with your support. It can take years to turn scientific breakthrough into new interventions and treatments. Funding helps speed the pace of change. When given the resources, we can bring transformative therapies – and hope – out of the laboratory and into the clinic to save and improve children’s lives.
