Nominate them for the Globie Awards

Globies - Celebrating Service to the Global Health Community

See our previous Globie Awards winners here »

For 70 years, PAHO/WHO Federal Credit Union has proudly served those who work tirelessly to build a better, healthier future for the global community. Even among those who put in the extra hours and devote years to the service of others, there are individuals who stand out. That’s why we’ve introduced the Globie Awards.

What are the Globies?

We strive to reflect the values of integrity, respect, and solidarity in everything we do. The Globies exemplify that commitment, and the dedication of those throughout the global health community, by highlighting individuals who make the world a better place. We need your help to find and honor those individuals.

Tell Us Their Story

As we celebrate our 70th anniversary over the next seven months, we’ll be taking nominations for individuals who are doing great work in the global health community. At the end of each month, we’ll select a Globie winner who will receive a $700 prize. We’ll also donate $1,000 in their name to the charity of their choice serving the global health community. In all, seven Globie winners will receive $4,900 in cash awards and $7,000 will be donated to charities doing great work.
