 Anna Qabale Duba Crowned World’s Best Nurse.

Kenyan national Anna Qabale Duba was crowned the first-ever recipient of the Aster Guardians Global Nursing Awards held in Dubai on Thursday, May 12.

Anna Qabale Duba, a Kenyan nurse stationed at the Marsabit County Referral Hospital, won the inaugural Aster Guardian Global Nursing Award for endorsing education and campaigning against outdated cultural practices like Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in her community. Duba, who took home USD 250,000 in prize money, was feted by Emirates CEO Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum at an award ceremony held in Dubai, which commemorated the International Nurses Day.

While receiving the award, Duba, the only female graduate in her village, revealed that she, through her Qabale Duba Foundation, had built a school in Marsabit which offers classes to young pupils and adults looking to get a decent education during the day and evening respectively.

The Aster Guardian Global Nursing Award received nominations from 24,000 nurses across 184 countries. Launched in 2021, by Aster DM Healthcare, the award was initiated to acknowledge the humanitarian care extended by nurses worldwide

All applications were evaluated to create a shortlist of 181 nurses, through a stringent review process run independently by Ernst & Young LLP. They were judged on four primary areas - leadership, research and innovation, patient care, and society and community service.

Apart from Qabale Duba, the other nine finalists also received a sum of $5,000 each. They included Dida Jirma Bulle, Francis Michael Fernando, Jasmine Mohammad Sharaf, Julia Dorothy Downing, Lincy Joseph, Manju Dhandapani, Mathew James Ball, Rachel Abraham Joseph and Waris Mohammad Qarani.
