The Zimbabwe Achievers Awards (ZAA) United Kingdom has announced it shall be holding its 2024 edition of the awards ceremony in Birmingham, United Kingdom 11 May with a new healthcare section introduced into the categories.

The event, according to a statement by the initiative’s founder, Conrad Mwanza, is set for the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre.

Public nominations for potential winners have been launched online with the process set to close 15 February.

Based on public input, the final nominees’ shortlist will be revealed 1 March, 2024.

Said Mwanza, “As always we aim to continuously evolve and reflect the growth made by Zimbabweans in different territories.

“As such, we are pleased to announce that this year’s edition features newly introduced categories in the healthcare sector to cater to the inspiring achievements by stakeholders in that line of work.”

He added, “We are also pleased by the constant support from everyone since the inception of the ZAA in 2010 and this year we are pleased to welcome Care Quality Support and Ultra Healthcare Solutions to the ZAA family as partners.

“Their contributions to the professional world is notable and aligns with the grand vision of the ZAA.”

The nominations are on with calls open for the selection of game changers and achievers in different disciplines such as business, academia, arts and culture, sport, media, among others.

The new healthcare sector categories come on the back of increased participation by individuals and organisations of Zimbabwean descent in the United Kingdom.

Some of the categories include Healthcare Male and Female Entrepreneur, Healthcare Business of the year and Best Supported Living Facility.

“Over the years, we have honoured many healthcare stakeholders such as Sabe Connor and Sarah Chitongo, to mention a few, for their groundbreaking achievements.

“However, these were mainly in other categories such as Professional and Entrepreneur of the Year.

“This year, however, we have elevated it to a dedicated stand-alone category and we applaud the moves by everyone involved,” Mwanza said.

ZAA was founded in 2010 in the UK to recognise, honour and celebrate outstanding achievements by Zimbabweans based in the diaspora.

It has grown to become one of the most prestigious movements on the global social calendar.

This year’s partners Care Quality Support and Ultra Healthcare Solutions, who are part of GMT Networks, is a family owned business with a passion in supporting Health and Social Care Providers in setting up, running and delivering outstanding services to their service users.

Commenting on the awards, Ultra Health Care UK CEO Godfrey Mushandu said, “ZAA has been one of the most consistent events in our community and we are happy to come on board and help to continue celebrating our pioneers and community champions’.”
