About the Award

The biennial Recognizing Excellence Around Champions of Health (REACH) Awards recognize those who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership and commitment in the fields of disease elimination. This year’s edition will also spotlight health workers who played a key role in the COVID-19 response and showcased exceptional dedication and courage while keeping the world safe.

From boots-on-the-ground innovators to local community health workers, the REACH Awards aim to celebrate critical contributions from those on the front lines of disease elimination. The awards underscore the belief of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, President of the UAE, that no one should suffer from a preventable disease.
