Break Dengue given ASAP Award for CSR

Every year, ASAP, a world leading professional association dedicated to the practice of alliance management, partnering, and business collaboration, chooses to highlight outstanding accomplishments of innovative partnerships at the Global Alliance Summit.

This year, 10 nominees competed in four categories for the Alliance Excellence Awards: Individual Alliance Excellence, Innovative Best Alliance Practice, Alliance Program Excellence, and Alliance for Corporate Social Responsibility.

We are thrilled to share that Break Dengue won the prize in the Corporate Social Responsibility category. The Alliances for Corporate Social Responsibility Award is for partnerships making a profound, measurable, and positive social impact.

Special recognition goes to the Break Dengue partners that made this result possible:

We are all winners

We are proud to have been considered together among the two other sound initiatives that had  a strong, relevant and diverse impact:

  1. Bayer and Drugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative (DNDi), an alliance focusing on developing a drug to dramatically reduce treatment time and increase effectiveness for River Blindness, a disease affecting 25 million people in 31 African countries.
  1. Dimension Data and Cisco Systems Inc, an alliance developing advanced tracking technology that helps reduce the number of rhinos being poached in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.

Break Dengue is committed to advancing the shared-value approach for addressing dengue fever – the fastest-growing mosquito-borne viral infection in the world today. Our partners continue to grow, co-creating solutions for tracking and predicting disease epidemics, educating the populations at risk on prevention models, as well as growing and enabling support to the scientific community. In addition to dengue, we are optimistic that down the road the platform our collaborations produced could be extended even further to lessen the impact other diseases.
