Interventions at an institutional level would ordinarily not be eligible unless they were likely to impact a broader population or a very large number of people.
No current member of the board or executive or awards committee of the WHL, or interventions or organizations they lead are eligible.
Individuals involved in producing, promoting or marketing tobacco or salt for consumption (outside of the recommended dietary salt intake promoted by the World Health Organization or the potential nominees’ regional government) are not eligible for award.
Individuals are eligible to receive the award more than once provided there are separate achievements of note. There may be multiple recipients in any year. Awardees will be notified by e-mail of the recognition by May 17th in honor of World Hypertension Day.
