The PGPR Award for Outstanding Contributions to Global Child Health is a means by which we honour and profile outstanding research achievements in global child health, especially work that has been conducted in developing regions.
The award includes a $10,000 honorarium and travel expenses to attend the Pediatric Academic Societies' annual meeting where the recipient is presented and, in turn, presents a review of his or her work.
The online nomination process begins during the summer. It is announced with an international call for nominations which are submitted entirely electronically. The process closes in November. At that point nominations are carefully reviewed by an international committee of experts.
The award is presented each year at the annual PAS Meeting.
