Know Someone Who Makes the World a Better Place?

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.

Dr. Fernando Zacarías

Dr. Fernando Zacarías

Nominated by fellow humanitarian Dr. Juan Manuel Sotelo, the Globies winner is Dr. Fernando Zacarías. This amazing man is a 75 year-old innovator, who still puts in long hours despite retiring from the CDC and PAHO on several occasions. His goal is to leave something valuable and useful to the generations to come. His latest creation is the MultiPOD Mentoring program (multipodmentoring.com) where he is the Principal Mentor and Program Coordinator.

This organization gives qualified, free advice to students and young professionals all over the world as they strive to go to work for WHO, PAHO and other life-changing organizations. The institute also supports students entering advanced academic programs for global health development.

While mentoring is a full-time job, Dr. Zacarías is also helping establish a worldwide, collective intelligence network and think tank of young professionals to help solve some of today’s biggest human development challenges.

In addition to winning a Globies Award with his name on it and the $700 cash prize, Dr. Zacarías has chosen Women in Global Health, with a mission to achieve gender equality in global health leadership, to receive the $1,000 donation from PAHO/WHO FCU.
