Guidelines & Form

The 2005 Call for Nominations is closed.

Through 15 August 2005, the Foundation is accepting nominations for the Moore Award. Nominees may be national or local non-governmental or private organizations operating in Latin America or the Caribbean, whose work has resulted in outstanding contributions in public health. Staff members of PAHO/WHO in active service, sitting members of the Foundation's board of trustees, and members of the Clarence Moore Award Jury are ineligible to receive the award.

To be considered, the nomination must be completed in its entirety.

To make a nomination, please submit and address a letter of introduction (no longer than one page on official letterhead) and a completed nomination form to the Clarence H. Moore Award Jury. The letter provides an opportunity to demonstrate the positive impact on health that the organizationís work has had.

Both the letter and completed nomination form must be signed and in English or Spanish. If the letter and nomination form are submitted electronically, they must have an electronic signature. Any unsigned documents will not be considered.

An organization may nominate itself, but it is strongly suggested that the nomination package also include a letter of support from someone not affiliated with the organization.

Submitted items other than the letter and completed application form will not be considered by the jury. Nominations must be received no later than 15 August 2005. Nominations received after this date will not be accepted.
