Help us continue to fund vital medical research in the face of the rapidly-unfolding coronavirus threat.

Take part in The 2.6 Challenge to keep funding vital research to help sick and vulnerable babies and children.

Did you know, sadly 10-20% of babies sadly do not survive if they are born at 26 weeks? At Action Medical Research we know through medical research we can stop the devastation caused by premature birth.

Our children need you now more than ever

For children with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, kidney disease and leukaemia, life is even more challenging at the moment.

Whilst the world is turned upside down by coronavirus, they still need our help - now and always - to develop treatments, vaccinations and cures that could save lives. Research can bring hope to these families.
