The biennial Recognizing Excellence Around Champions of Health (REACH) Awards recognize those who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership and commitment in the field of disease elimination. 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, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, that no one should suffer from preventable diseases and that the ability of people to live a healthy life is a key driver of development, which leads to stable, prosperous societies.
“There are many people around the world who are driven to help others by pure conscience. These people deserve our respect, appreciation and honor.”
His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi
