Commitment to Action

Celebrating & Accelerating The Work Of Health Workers

Commitment by

Save the Children

In 2012, Save the Children and its partners committed to launch The REAL Awards, an annual event that will highlight the important role health workers play in the lives of children and families throughout the world, and demonstrate the universal and urgent need for additional trained, caring health workers on the frontlines. By some estimates, there is a worldwide shortage of more than 5 million health workers, including one million frontline health workers. The REAL Awards aims to forge a strong and enduring understanding between health workers around the world, mobilizing citizen action in the U.S. to help frontline health workers help save more people's lives worldwide.
