15 Jul Webinar: HRH2030 Health Workforce Resilience Prize Virtual Award Ceremony
(Webinar June 24, 2020): In recognition of the adaptability and resourcefulness of health workers, HRH2030 introduced the HRH2030 Health Workforce Resilience Prize in January 2020 to identify successful tools, methods, or approaches to improve or enhance health worker resiliency. HRH2030 received 99 applications from 31 countries with approaches ranged from job aids, online games, and capacity building approaches to new data tracking tools. Applicants included individuals and civil society, community- and faith-based organizations, and for-profit commercial businesses, as well as government, non-governmental, not-for-profit, private, research/education, and volunteer groups or organizations.
On June 24, 2020, we hosted a virtual award ceremony in which we awarded $50,000 in prize money to two winning organizations: Nyaya Health Nepal and TNH Health in Brazil, for their innovative approaches to foster health worker resiliency. The ceremony features remarks from two USAID guest speakers, presentations by representatives from the winning organizations, and a question and answer session with the winners.
