2021 Global Vision Community Partnership Award
The WHA Foundation is proud once again to announce that the Global Vision Community Partnership Award will be awarded in 2021 to 2 deserving recipients. 

This award was established in 1993. The Award's goal is to provide recognition, financial support and public awareness of a community health initiative or project, created in partnership with a WHA member, that successfully addresses a documented community health need. Partnerships must reach across the community or population served, and the program must be an active, ongoing enterprise at the time of the nomination.
