Nominations are open to individuals from across the sector, including those who work for suppliers, NGOs, governmental individuals and the development aid community.

Finalists will be announced shortly after this date. The winner will be awarded during the AidEx networking reception on 15 November at Brussels Expo in Belgium.

At AidEx 2016, Dr Cynthia Maung was awarded for her exceptional work that has helped to provide healthcare and education to poor ethnic minorities along the Thai-Myanmar border. After pro-democracy demonstrations in Burma in 1988, Dr Muang had fled to Karen State where she was born to open the Mae Tao Clinic. Starting as a makeshift clinic with limited supplies and almost no money, her clinic now treats over 75,000 patients a year.

AidEx is the largest specialist platform for aid professionals around the world and is the must-attend conference for the international community. This event takes place alongside satellite conferences in Nairobi and Dhaka and is FREE to attend for all non-profit organisations.
