Call For Nominations For 2018 Societal Awards
Health Systems Global (HSG), in close cooperation with the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research (AHPSR), is pleased to announce the call for nominations for its awards to recognise and reward high standards of professional performance and contributions of individuals or organisations to the field of Health Policy and Systems Research (HPSR) and health systems strengthening.
Nominations are invited for two types of awards to be submitted on or before the deadline of 17:00 GMT on 25th May 2018:
- The Sam Adjei Distinguished Public Service Award for leadership in evidence-based policy and health systems strengthening is presented to recognise and honour an individual who has demonstrated leadership in evidence-informed health policy formulation for stronger health systems; has championed the field of HPSR within his or her particular context; or has made significant contributions to the enhancement of health systems, nationally and/or internationally. The recipient has to be an individual currently or previously in an elected or appointed position in government, an international agency, or other non-profit organisation engaged in public service.
- The Award for Lifetime Service to the field of HPSR is presented to an individual in recognition of extraordinary lifetime achievement in the field of health policy and systems research.
The awards do not carry any monetary value, but serve to recognise and celebrate extraordinary contributions.
The awards will be announced during the Fifth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in Liverpool in October 2018, and on the HSG and AHPSR websites.
