Call for Applications: WHO Healthy Islands Recognition 2019

Published on: 2 Feb, 2019

Have you thought about applying for the Healthy Islands Recognition Award?

The WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific is now inviting Governments, local authorities (city councils, provinces, districts and villages), communities, organizations (including schools, workplaces, faith-based groups) and civil society groups in the 22 Pacific island countries and areas (PICs) to submit applications for Healthy Islands Recognition 2019 under the ‘best practice’ and ‘best proposal’ categories.

The Healthy Islands Recognition Award was intended to encourage PICs to innovate and demonstrate effective and efficient ways of promoting and protecting the health of their populations.

There will be two winners from each of the two categories. Winners will receive up to 10,000 USD to further develop the project or programme set out in the application.

Please share this with other individuals/organizations whose work could also be an inspiration to other Pacific Island Countries.

To apply and for further information please follow this link:—documents/dps/call-for-application-2019-form.pdf?sfvrsn=75d45568_6
