Women in Protection and Health Awards 2024: Winners

The COVER Women in Protection and Health Awards 2024 unveiled its list of winners on 2 May 2024, in an evening dedicated to the female leaders in the industry.

The winners were selected by a panel of expert judges from numerous excellent entries, demonstrated in the fact that many of our categories had highly commended entries, which could have won the category had another not just pipped them to the post.
