AboutKidsHealth.ca is a new Canadian online source for reliable child health information. Developed at the Hospital for Sick Children by SickKids Learning Institute, the site’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of children in Canada and around the world by making child health care information available in multiple languages via the Internet.
The site collaborates with over 300 pediatric health specialists from pediatric hospitals across Canada to provide parents, children, and community health care providers with evidence-based information about a wide array of medical conditions from insect bites to ADHD.
Information provided on the site is created and reviewed in accordance with rigorous quality standards to create a standardized national library of child health information that will be available online, in print, and as audio, video, and animated media.
