Care, dedication and commitment recognised by Beckman award

A 28-year-old African community youth worker, Evah Namakula, has won the first global CARES HIV/AIDS award, designed to recognise ordinary people who have shown ‘care, dedication and commitment’ in their communities as part of the fight against the disease.

In its first year, the CARES award focused on the dedication of ordinary people in Africa, one of the areas in the world most affected by HIV/AIDS. The award has two categories of winners – an individual, Ms Namakula, and an organization, the Hillcrest AIDS Centre Trust (HACT). This is a South African charity that cares for some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in Africa.

                Each year, the winning organisation will receive a grant of $5500 provided by Beckman Coulter Life Sciences through the Beckman Coulter Foundation.
