Protect the ones your love with a Juno ChildSafe
- Every two hours a young Australian child is rushed to an emergency department after taking medication they should never have touched.
- Poisons help lines receive an average of 55 calls every day for the same reason.
- Medication is the most common cause of poisoning in children aged 4 years and younger, and one of the most common causes of injury requiring hospitalisation.
- Paracetamol and ibuprofen containing medicines, such as Panadol and Nurofen, are the most commonly implicated medications.
- The majority of medicine taken by young children belongs to parents and grandparents, and more than half comes from handbags, purses and wallets; tables and nightstands; or out of pill boxes.
- Most medication in Australia is not in child-resistant packaging.
We developed Juno ChildSafe to help keep young children safe from accidental medicine poisoning. It's the child-resistant bag that keeps the kids out but lets adults in.
