Cross-posted from the SIGN newsletter with thanks! The Yves Chartier Award 2014 rewards an NGO, or an actor from civil society, from an African country, who will have elaborated a campaign or achieved an innovative project in the struggle against antimicrobial resistance and climate change, relative to one of three specific domains of intervention : Water – Sanitation & Toilets – Injection Safety. The French engineer Yves Chartier who died in a mountain accident January 8, 2012, was an international functionary in the World Health Organization (WHO) who had brought major contributions in these three domains of intervention. This initiative comes from civil society, in collaboration with the French Ministry of Health, contributing the sum of five thousand euros, to honor the memory of a man who devoted his life to «la santé publique à la française » (The French concept of public health). This follows the 2012 event to honor his memory at the World Health Assembly with an International Journal for People's Health, which includes the list of all the Yves Chartier contributions while at WHO: http://signpostonline.info/sign-links/peoples-health-movement-france.
