CANSA a Finalist at the Vision 2030 Awards: South Africa’s Future Makers
The annual Vision 2030 Awards have announced their 2019 finalists and CANSA is a finalist in the Health Care Category. The winners will be announced and celebrated on 20 November 2019 at Emperors Palace, Ekurhuleni.
The Health Care Award goes to a company that demonstrates excellence in addressing urgencies within the six elements of the district-level health system: service delivery, workforce, information dissemination, medical products, vaccines and technologies, and improved health financing. This organisation will be enabling better health outcomes in terms of equity and quality, responsiveness, social cohesion, financial risk protection and improved efficiencies.
“The awards recognise the achievements and success stories of organisations, enterprises and individuals that are actively demonstrating alignment to the government’s Nine-Point Plan to boost economic growth and achieve the milestones set by the National Development Plan (NDP). The Vision 2030 Awards and Summit help connect business and government, by identifying and sharing best practices of leading companies and organisations that have implemented successful development and investment projects and can clearly demonstrate success with measurable returns to stakeholders in relation to projects aligned to the NDP,” says CANSA CEO, Elize Joubert.
About the Awards
The overwhelming number of nominations for the various categories of the awards casts a positive glow on the future of South Africa and showcases the commitment of both the public and private sectors to the NDP. With categories such as the Education Award, Infrastructure Development Award, SMME Award and the Driver For Change Award, the Vision 2030 Awards are all encompassing when it comes to recognising champions of the National Development Plan. Leading by example, the winners showcased by the Awards will inspire their sector peers, and stakeholders nationwide to pledge commitment to the NDP – not in words alone but also in actions that move the nation forward.
The awards, and the accompanying Vision 2030 Summit, draw together a host of business and government leaders to have crucial representation from all key decision-makers because it is only through extensive Public-Private Partnerships, that South Africa by 2030, will have become the country envisioned by the National Development Plan.
