The Rabbi Erica and Mark Gerson L’Chaim (“To Life”) Prize for Outstanding Christian Medical Mission Service is the world’s largest annual award dedicated to direct patient care. The $500,000 award recipient is selected annually by a panel of leaders in African Medicine. It is administered by African Mission Healthcare (AMH), a non-profit organization whose mission is to strengthen mission hospitals to aid those in greatest need. AMH was co-founded by Mark Gerson, and fellow M3 Conference speaker, Dr. Jon Fielder. Since its inception in 2010, AMH has distributed $20 million in assistance to 40 facilities in 16 countries. This support has made possible over 550,000 patient visits, 11,500 surgeries, 115 healthcare scholarships, and training of 2,600 HIV care providers.
