Each year, Discovery Health bestows awards on a well-deserving health journalist in each of the categories. One of these well deserving journalists will walk away with the main prize, the Discovery Health Journalist of the Year Award.

Joining the list of elite journalists across Africa, Peace Hyde has been shortlisted for the category of Young Upcoming Health Journalist award for her work detailing the horrific practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and its effect on the young girls who endure the vicious act.
