Media Alert: Annual Provincial Cecilia Makiwane Nurse's Recognition Awards Ceremony
The Western Cape Department of Health will host its annual Provincial Cecilia Makiwane Nurses Recognition Awards Ceremony to recognise the important role played by nurses, who are often overlooked and undervalued. The award seeks to motivate and inspire nurses by recognising and rewarding service delivery excellence.
The Cecilia Makiwane Recognition Awards for Nurses is an initiative of the Ministry of Health, in partnership with the provincial departments. The award was named after Cecilia Makiwane, the first black nurse to be recognised by Government almost a century ago.
These awards will be handed over by the MEC for Health in the Western Cape, Theuns Botha, in recognition of the important role played by nurses in the province.
