The Mac Keith Press International Awards

The International Alliance of Academies of Childhood Disabilities (IAACD) is joining with Mac Keith Press to recognize outstanding contributions to advancing the health and wellbeing of individuals with child-onset disabilities through two awards.  The first award recognizes an individual or organization whose work contributes to the global agenda to reduce disparities in health outcomes while the second award provides focused recognition of an individuals or organizations contribution that has impact within countries with limited resources, recognizing that innovation within these communities, if shared, can have important broader impact and bring focus to the distinct issues of child onset disabilities in these communities.  The awards support an increased focus and attention to the worldwide issues related to the needs of children and their families and the enormous disparity in opportunity that currently exists.
