These Are The Real Awards

The REAL Awards was created to celebrate the work of a truly deserving group of people; healthcare workers who are saving lives every day around the world. For some of us, healthcare workers are available close to home, whenever we need them, but for many others, they are a scarce and distant resource. However, we all benefit from their extraordinary dedication to keeping our families and communities healthy.

The REAL Awards is your opportunity to honor a health worker who has inspired you. Nominate someone today, then spread the word about their lifesaving work by sharing their inspiring stories with your social networks.

About the Real Awards

The REAL Awards was created to celebrate and accelerate the lifesaving work of health workers everywhere. It is an opportunity for you to honor a health worker who inspires you, and spread the word about the vital work of health workers around the world.

The World Health Organization estimates at least 1 million more frontline health workers are urgently needed in developing countries, particularly in Africa and parts of Asia. Properly trained and supported frontline health workers hold the potential to save millions of lives.

Help us spread the word about the importance of health workers in all of our lives by nominating an outstanding health worker in your life, and by sharing their stories on Facebook and Twitter.
