We are pleased to announce the selection of the ten finalists of the inaugural Falcon Awards for Disease Elimination! These finalists were selected from a pool of over 200 impressive submissions from 44 endemic countries, and will now advance to the final round of evaluation. In this round, a jury of experts will score each of the final proposals and announce the five winners of the Falcon Awards.
The Falcon Awards were launched in early 2021 to help advance the elimination of malaria, polio, lymphatic filariasis, and onchocerciasis. Following the selection of the winners, GLIDE will award up to five grants of up to US$200,000 each to organisations based in endemic countries.
We thank all who submitted for their time and effort, and invite you to stay engaged as we continue our journey to help achieve disease elimination.
