TeachAIDS is delighted to announce that we have been recognized by The Innovation Enterprise with the 2016 Strategic Transformation Award. This award is presented to an organization that embodies “a transformation of common outdated practices” and engenders “incredible cultural shifts”.
TeachAIDS was selected for our “exceptional efforts in strengthening business performance and growth” and “triumphs of 2016”, including the release of the Tibetan Language HIV education materials, ongoing expansion across India, and the continued distribution of high quality health education software around the world.
Winners were announced at the Chief Innovation Officer Summit and Chief Strategy Officer Summit at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Rebecca Thomson, International Events Director of Innovation Enterprise, noted that the 2016 award nominees were extremely strong. “We were very impressed with the thought and dedication put into creating this year’s high quality entries, which made selecting just one winner for each category incredibly difficult”.
The innovative approach for which TeachAIDS was recognized involves the development of high quality, evidence-based health education materials that are made available for free to all. Designed to teach users how to protect themselves and their loved ones from HIV and to reduce the stigmas associated with this condition, the software is developed for linguistically diverse regions, including technologically-preliterate rural areas. Each of the 27 language versions in 13 unique languages is culturally-sensitive, medically-accurate and pedagogically-grounded.
The award committee comprised of the Innovation Enterprise Strategy & Innovation Advisory Board, which consists of high-level executives working across areas of strategy and innovation at numerous Fortune 500 companies, including McCain Foods, Disney, BNP Paribas, Diageo, Hilton and many more.
TeachAIDS is honored to accept this prestigious award. We thank the award committee for their kind recognition of our innovative approach to health education. We intend to continue to innovate this field to provide high quality health education to those who need it most around the world.Photo: The Innovation Enterprise Strategic Transformation Award was presented at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco.
