    The EU health prize award is made in recognition of the work journalists do in raising awareness on important health issues that affect the lives of everyone.

    Kate's work will now be considered by an EU jury against the 27 other national finalists to decide the overall EU winner who will be invited to an awards ceremony at the Commission headquarters in Brussels in April 2014.

    In 2011, Kate and her Reuters colleague, Ben Hirschler, scooped the overall EU first prize for their report "When drugs don't work" which looked at the rise of superbugs against a backdrop of pharmaceutical companies withdrawing from the development of new antibiotics.

    Kate Kelland is a health and science correspondent at Reuters where she covers everything from drug and vaccine development, to emerging infectious diseases, to the science of superbugs, to the battles against cancer, mental illness, AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.
