The Global Health Technologies Coalition’s (GHTC) Innovating for Impact Awards celebrates the research partnerships and political champions that help transform breakthrough scientific research into lifesaving drugs, diagnostics, vaccines, and other health tools for devastating, unmet global health challenges.
Awards are presented in two categories:
The PARTNERSHIP AWARD honors an innovative research and development (R&D) partnership that brings together industry, government, nonprofits, academia, or other partners to advance a high-impact, game-changing global health technology. The partnership must have received federally funded research support or in-kind support from a US government agency.
The CONGRESSIONAL CHAMPION AWARD honors two US Members of Congress whose actions have strengthened political will and advanced US efforts to develop technologies to fight the world’s most challenging diseases and health conditions.
Nominations will be accepted through Wednesday, July 31, 2019. Awardees will be editorially selected by a committee of leaders from the global health and research communities and honored at a recognition dinner in Washington, DC in November before an audience of policymakers, US government officials, media, and leaders of the global health and medical research communities.
