GlobalCapital Health Insurance is organising its first Bupa Malta awards to recognise the outstanding contribution of Maltese in the health sector.
The three awards, which will celebrate the work of those who have contributed to health research, health improvement and health charities, will be handed to the honourees during a gala dinner being held at The Phoenicia Malta this week.
“This is our way of saying a big thank you to those people who have invested time and energy in improving our healthcare," GlobalCapital chairman Paolo Catalfamo said. "We plan to make these awards an annual celebration on the local calendar of events.”
The awards will go to those who have worked on ground-breaking research or supported the work of those in need.
“All of these endeavours contribute in different ways and not only do they involve constant effort and commitment but have to be sustained over many years. Medicine continues to advance in leaps and bounds and Bupa Malta is keen to play its part in supporting these initiatives.”
Bupa, a global healthcare company created in the UK in 1947, was the pioneer of health insurance in Malta when it opened its first overseas business in 1971.
Bupa has been providing support for those dealing with health problems for over four decades and it has since focused on providing the best cancer support and information available to the people living in Malta and across the globe.
In addition, GlobalCapital launched a unique product in Malta two years ago called Cancer Care through GlobalCapital Life Insurance, which has provided many of its clients with the support they needed at a very difficult point in their lives.
GlobalCapital Health Insurance executive director Adriana Zarb Adami said: “As part of the healthcare community, Bupa wants to go beyond simply being there when you need us most; we want to support those who are working to improve healthcare for us all.”
