Now in its 20th year, these awards are a recognition of the work done by journalists which contribute towards health in the country by providing sound information to the population for decisions in health. This year, in addition to work related to healthy aging, we are once again encouraging journalists, reporters and media personnel to examine a wide range of elements including the concept of health and the numerous connections between those elements.
