Welcome to the Pediatric Emergency Research Networks (PERN) Website

PERN is an association of pediatric emergency medicine research networks. This association enables dialogue between member networks and collaboration between large numbers of researchers and investigative sites across the world. Such a collaboration brings unique opportunities to answer globally relevant research questions via large collaborative research studies that can only be performed in the international context with large numbers of children assessed in diverse environments.

Currently, PERN consists of representatives from 5 of the 6 World Health Organization regions. We encourage and support involvement and/or initiation of similar networks from the remaining regions of Africa, Eastern Mediterranean and Asia. Such global collaboration will result in appropriately powered and generalizable knowledge concerning the emergency treatment of children.
