REPORT OF THE AWARD COMMITTEE

OF THE PAHO AWARD FOR ADMINISTRATION, 1999

The Award Committee of the PAHO Award for Administration, 1999, met on 22 June during the 124th Session of the Executive Committee. After extensive debate, the Committee unanimously decided to confer the PAHO Award for Administration, 1999, on Dr. Ana Flisser Steinbruch, of Mexico, for her work to transform the network of public health laboratories in her country to support priority health programs, including administration, teaching, and research.

The Award Committee also reviewed the selection process and recommends several changes to the procedures that could facilitate the consideration of the merits of the candidates by the Award Committee:

− that a Member State put forward no more than one candidate in any year, selecting the candidate each considers most qualified;

− that a form be developed and sent with the annual Award announcement that requests specific information responding to the three criteria outlined in the Award "Guidelines", that is, administration, teaching, and research;

− that the basis for nominating a candidate be their contributions in their own country or in the Region of the Americas;

− that the Secretariat insure that each candidate has responded to and meets the criteria of the "Guidelines" prior to submission to the Award Committee as a candidate for consideration.
