More than 1500 nominations were received for the Awards from across South Asia and were shortlisted to 30 nominations across 10 categories.

The Chief Guest for the Award ceremony was Dr. V.K. Paul, Member Niti Aayog, who addressed the audience and gave away an Award providing encouragement to the winners and finalists alike.

 

Speaking on the occasion, Chief Guest Dr. V.K.Paul said, “I salute this great institution The BMJ, and wish you best for leading healthcare professionals to truth, knowledge and innovation. I congratulate all 30 finalists for making into the prestigious awards and specially mention the international guests for making it here from 9 countries of South Asia. The BMJ is a journal that we all aspired to be featured in and most of us failed to do so. I am fortunate to have been featured in its pages couple of times and I still cherish those pages. In our time, we used to refer 5-6 journals to gain knowledge, today people do not do it. With its various initiatives like BMJ global health, am happy that BMJ has taken initiative to change this scenario.”
