Fundación MAPFRE presented its Awards last June in Madrid, in an event presided over by Her Majesty Queen Sofia. The aim is to recognize the good work of institutions and individuals contributing with their daily work to improving life for society as a whole, in areas related to social commitment, research, health, accident prevention and insurance. The event was also attended by Magdalena Valerio, the Spanish Labor Minister, and Antonio Huertas, president of Fundación MAPFRE.

The prizewinners were: the former soccer coach Vicente del Bosque, with the José Manuel Martínez Lifetime Achievement Award; the Brazilian NGO Turma do Bem, with the award for the Best Social Action Initiative for their project “O dentista do Bem” [Dentist for Good]; the Organization of American Firefighters (OAF), with the award for the Best Accident Prevention Initiative; the EHAS (Enlace Hispano Americano de Salud) Foundation, with the award for the Best Health Promotion Initiative; and finally, the Julio Castelo Matrán International Insurance Award went to the Wharton Risk Management and Decision Processes Center, of the University of Pennsylvania, USA.
