LONDON – Moses Mulimira, the Uganda-UK Health Alliance leader, has been awarded the prestigious Diaspora Global Health Recognition Award at the 5th Diaspora Engagement Forum and African Diaspora & Development Day 2024.

The event, held in London, celebrated Mulimira’s exceptional commitment and significant contributions to healthcare both in the United Kingdom and Uganda.

The award, presented by Chief Nursing Officer of Wales, Sue Tranka, and Chief Executive Officer of Spire Healthcare, Justin Ash, highlights Mulimira’s impactful work in bridging healthcare initiatives across borders.

“This award is not just a recognition of my efforts but a testament to the power of collaboration with development partners,” Mulimira stated. “I am truly grateful for this honour and the opportunity to contribute toward global health.”

Mulimira’s recognition comes from his tireless work and dedication, which have positively influenced healthcare practices and outcomes in both the UK and Uganda. His commitment has been lauded as a representation of exemplary leadership and a model for cross-border health initiatives.

The African Union Commission’s African Institute for Remittances (AIR) and the African Foundation for Development (AFFORD UK) organized the forum, aiming to harness diaspora resources for sustainable socio-economic development and investment in Africa.

The event sought to maximize the development impact of remittances by promoting knowledge exchange among diaspora communities, development NGOs, national and local authorities, and the private sector.

Key discussions at the event included:

  • Diaspora investments and philanthropic channels
  • Collective diaspora initiatives: experiences, opportunities, and the role of technology
  • The role of remittances in emergencies and humanitarian action
  • Developing diaspora-targeted investment products to break through barriers

The forum provided an essential networking platform for diaspora members, development actors, private sector representatives, civil society, and government officials. It aimed to build trust and create effective channels for channelling migrant remittances towards development purposes.

Additionally, the event focused on leveraging remittances for investment and sustainable development in Africa.

Notable dignitaries attending the event included Giorgia Prati, Migration & Climate Change Specialist at FAO, Ambassador Edwin Afande, Acting High Commissioner of Kenya to the UK, and Lewis Goode, CEO & Founder of AfriVest.
