Conectus

Conectus supports healthy outcomes for infants, children and their families.

Conectus is an alliance of organisations within The School of Population Health. They all share an interest in improving aspects of health for infants, children and their families.

The individual organisations within Conectus provide a range of services, focussing primarily on the training, support and education of health professionals who work in the community. Conectus provides infrastructure, resources and administrative support for these organisations. In the future, Conectus expects to extend their partnerships within and outside of the faculty, building on and maintaining both academic and clinical relationships.
