Across the PATA network, we have seen the sacrifices and dedication of health providers working
tirelessly to deliver uninterrupted HIV services, treating and providing psychosocial support for
children and young people, during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. In recognition of the remarkable
efforts and dedication of frontline health providers in delivering HIV services to children and
adolescents, whilst also fighting COVID-19, PATA has joined the WHO in dedicating 2021 to frontline
health providers as “Year of the Health and Care worker” under the theme: “Protect. Invest.

PATA Summits have always been a time for PATA to recognise the efforts and dedication of frontline
health providers.

At this year’s Summit PATA will be presenting 4 just for fun awards on the final day of the Summit,
award winners will be recognised in the summit report, social media, and on the PATA
website. On this page, you will find out how you can join the action.
