A message from our Co-Directors

Dear colleagues

As COVID-19 continues to impact the Australian public and our core services, we hope that all of you, your loved ones and communities are staying safe and well during this difficult time.  

We appreciate that the escalating developments are likely to have both short- and longer-term implications for our colleagues, staff and students. This will also likely impact the timing or feasibility of some aspects of our program of work.

The Coordinating Centre team will adapt to the current situation as it changes and continue to support your projects. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns at: preventioncentre@saxinstitute.org.au  

We would also like to express our sincere appreciation for the important work of our health sector partners in leading the response, and for the wider Prevention Centre community who are contributing valuable skills and expertise to dealing with the crisis.

Kind regards
Lucie and Andrew
