In 2019, FAIMER is proud to announce an exciting enhancement to the Projects That Work competition. In addition to a fully paid registration and travel award to attend the annual conference of The Network: Towards Unity for Health (TUFH), being held September 10-13, 2019, in Darwin, Australia, winners will receive up to $30,000 USD to expand their work!

The Projects That Work competition is sponsored by FAIMER to recognize excellent projects that have succeeded beyond initial implementation and have had a significant impact on health, the community, or the school over three or more years. Please note: If your project is less than three years old, it is not eligible for this competition.

An open worldwide call resulted in 53 submissions from which six projects were selected by an international panel of 23 reviewers.

The winners of the 2019 Projects That Work competition are:

Attisso Komlan Désiré Dabla, Togo
