On June 14th, Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, in collaboration with Cátedras en Red, held the VIII edition of its Affective-Effective Awards Forum under the slogan 'Towards an innovative and sustainable Evolution of human health', an event where the winning projects of these awards, which seek to recognize those initiatives that put the patient at the center of the healthcare system, were announced.

In a face-to-face format after two years of obliged virtuality due to the pandemic, the forum was attended by Mª Dolores Moreno, Health Humanization coordinator of the Community of Madrid, who was accompanied at the opening table by Boi Ruiz, Director of the University Institute of Patients of the International University of Catalonia and representative of Networked Chairs; Dolors Navarro, Director of the Patient Participation and Empowerment Area of the Hospital Sant Joan de Deu and President of the Jury of the Effective Affective Awards; and Luis Díaz-Rubio, President and CEO of Janssen Iberia.

During the event, professionals from different fields who have developed the values of the Affective-Effective Model from a triple perspective: human, innovative and sustainable, also took part, highlighting how medicine is experiencing unprecedented advances, but also the challenges that this entails. 

The ceremony also served to acknowledge posthumously the career of Dr. Salvador Tranche Iparraguirre, who passed away in February of 2022. Dr. Tranche worked as a doctor in a Primary Care Center in Oviedo and was president of the Spanish Society of Family and Community Medicine (semFYC). The winners of the eight award-winning categories can be consulted on the Forum's website and include a wide range of projects, entities and initiatives that promote more humane and effective healthcare, with the figure of the patient as part and center of the system.
