PAHO Award for Administration 2013

The PAHO Award for Administration, created in 1969, is bestowed in recognition of an outstanding contribution in the field of administration within the framework of national health services.

The original procedures and criteria for conferring this award were adopted by the 18th Pan American Sanitary Conference in 1970 and have been amended a number of times to better reflect the demands of the new millennium and the strategies with which the PAHO Secretariat and the Member Governments should address them. At the same time, the changes recognize the importance of having a larger, more diverse pool of candidates to permit a selection process consistent with these challenges.

The Organization is now receiving nominations for the 2013 edition of the award. There is extensive information on PAHO’s Awards and Honors page, for anyone interested in sending a nomination.
