With this announcement, the Task Force for Global Health joins two other STH Coalition members as previous award recipients.

BRAC, one of the largest NGOs in the world, received the award in 2008. The Hilton Foundation recognized BRAC’s commitment to long-term development through grass roots health, education, and financial empowerment programs that target women specifically as agents of change in their communities.

PATH, an international nonprofit dedicated to global health innovation, received the Hilton Humanitarian Prize in 2009 for its focus on improving the health of people around the world by advancing technologies, strengthening systems, and encouraging healthy behaviors.

Dr. David Addiss, Director of CWW, noted, “while this award was given to the Task Force for Global Health, it really reflects the committed work of hundreds of partners with whom CWW and other Task Force programs collaborate. The Hilton Humanitarian prize celebrates all that has been achieved – and all that is possible – through these remarkable partnerships."
