APACPH Award

The APACPH Founder McLaren Leadership Award
(Original name : The Professor Kazue K. McLaren Leadership Achievement Award)

The Professor Kazue K. McLaren Leadership Achievement Award is presented to individuals who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in promoting the quality of life and health of the peoples in communities of their nations or region.

An important aspect of their efforts have been to promote the goals of Child Survival and Health for All movements and ensuring the distribution of health services reach the unreached, stimulating intersectoral coordination and health partnership, and importing academic quality in schools of public health and departments of community medicine. More so, their work reflects the spirit and philosophy of the person in whose name this award was established.

The Professor K. McLaren Award of the Asia-Pacific Academic Consortium for Public Health was created to honour the work of the late Professor Kazue Kimura McLaren, who made significant contributions to the advancement of public health throughout her 46-year record of service as a distinguished member of the Asia-Pacific public health community.

For 30 years, Professor McLaren served as a member of the Hawaii State Department of Health, rising to the position of Chief of Public Health Nursing. Having completed that period of service, she joined the School of Public Health, University of Hawaii, in 1975 as a member of the International Health faculty where she developed innovative teaching programs in Hawaii, Asia, and the Pacific Basin, with a focus on public health management, primary health care and health leadership.

In 1979 she assumed responsibilities for initiating a Special Educational Opportunity Program at the School to provide access to graduate training in public health for underserved ethnic populations. Herself a member of a minority, as a Japanese American, she had a spirit of personal understanding in instituting programs, which assisted hundreds of people from Micronesia, the Native American Indian and Alaska Native Communities, Native Hawaiians and other minorities to achieve their graduate credentials in public health.

Professor McLaren was one of the founders of the Asia-Pacific Academic Consortium for Public Health. She served as its first Program Officer on the University of Hawaii faculty to direct, in concert with the Secretary-General of the Consortium, the operational phases of this union of public health faculties across Asia and the Pacific. Her dedication, spirit of willingness, her understanding, her innovative nature and her constant willingness to serve in extraordinary ways endeared her to all members of her chosen profession. Her spirit continues to energise the Consortium in carrying out its mission to enhance professional education for public health.
