26 Jun 2018 -  With remarks by the Deputy Secretary-General.
Each year, the Committee for the United Nations Population Award honours an individual and/or institution in recognition of outstanding contributions to population and reproductive health questions and to their solutions. The Award was established by the General Assembly in 1981, in resolution 36/201, and was first presented in 1983. It consists of a gold medal, a diploma and a monetary prize. The Committee for the United Nations Population Award is comprised of 10 UN Member States, with United Nations Secretary-General and UNFPA Executive Director serving as ex-officio members. Nominations for the award are accepted through 31 December of each year.
This year's winners are Sir Prince Ramsey, a family physician from Antigua and Barbuda, as well as Save a Child's Heart (Israel) and The Guttmacher Institute (United States).
