The PAHO Award for Administration is a recognition conferred every year by the Governments of the Americas through their representatives in the meetings of the Governing Bodies of the Pan American Health Organization, in recognition of an outstanding contribution in the field of administration within the framework of the national health services. This Award has a long tradition dating back to 1969. The Award is conferred on a candidate who has made a significant contribution in his or her home country and in the Region of the Americas, to improving health development through the management or execution of services and programs, teaching, and research.
In 2012 the Pan American Sanitary Conference takes place. Thus, this should be a special occasion to grant the oldest award conferred by our Organization to those who have made outstanding contributions to the strengthening of health systems through management. The closing date for receiving nominations to the Award is March 31.
