Guardian Achievements in International Development Award

The Guardian, in partnership with the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and Marie Stopes International, has announced an exciting new award – The Guardian Achievements in International Development Award.

Designed to recognize unsung heroes of international development, the award will honor “people who have made an impact by improving the lives of some of the world’s poorest people – people who have gone beyond the call of duty to make a difference.”

I’d like to encourage you to nominate someone whose contribution involves working to promote the health and rights of women and girls. As IWHC Partner Dorothy Aken’ova pointed out in her recent speech at the 20th World Population Day, investing in women is key to a prosperous and secure future.

The deadline to submit a nomination is this Friday, so don’t wait to nominate your unsung hero and let the world know that investing in women means investing in the world.  For more information, and to submit a nomination, visit

    A fantastic award — We submitted the amazing Dr. Fred Sai for his lifetime of work fighting for maternal health.
