P3 Impact Award

The P3 Impact Award was created by Concordia, the University of Virginia Darden School Institute for Business in Society, and the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Global Partnerships to recognize and honor leading public-private partnerships (P3s) that improve communities and the world. Inaugurated in 2014, the P3 Impact Award is presented each fall at the Concordia Annual Summit in New York, New York*. The award seeks to highlight leading practices and actionable insights in the P3 arena. For this award, a P3 refers to any cross-sector collaboration that features public, private, nonprofit, or non-governmental organizations and addresses societal problems.


*While we’re not certain where the world will be at the end of September, what matters is that the Concordia Annual Summit will take place in one way or another, whether that’s in person or digitally. The latest updates and announcements will be published here on a regular basis.
Concordia is monitoring official guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) relating to COVID-19 on an ongoing basis and will liaise with local, national, and international public health authorities.

2019 P3 Impact Award Winner

Congratulations to the Bioko Island Malaria Elimination Project (BIMEP), from Equatorial Guinea, for winning both the 2019 P3 Impact Award and the 2019 Audience Choice Award!

The BIMEP addresses malaria morbidity and mortality affecting the population living and working on Bioko Island and informs a broader malaria control strategy for the rest of the African continent.
