Management Sciences for Health recognized 10 leading public health professionals for their unique contributions to strengthening health systems worldwide. The honorees and presenters included people working at all levels of the health system—from governments, to the private sector, community health workers and civil society—who are working to save lives and improve the health of some of the world's most vulnerable populations.
The event, hosted by international journalist and television host Femi Oke, was held September 20 at Manhattan's Riverpark Restaurant, in conjunction with the 71st United Nations General Assembly. Event partners included IHP+ for UHC2030, The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health (PMNCH), and the No More Epidemics campaign.
