HIDEYO NOGUCHI AFRICA PRIZE
PURPOSE AND DESCRIPTION OF THE PRIZE

The spread of infectious diseases presents a common threat to all humankind.  Mindful that Africa faces this scourge most acutely, the Government of Japan established the Hideyo Noguchi Africa Prize in July 2006 in memory of Dr. Hideyo Noguchi (1876-1929) whose belief in medical advancement and self-sacrificing activities in Africa remain a beacon of inspiration to all. Guided by these ideals and mindful of the ominous human suffering persisting in Africa, the region facing the most serious health challenge on the globe, the Prize aims to honour individuals with outstanding achievements in the fields of medical research and medical services to combat infectious and other diseases in Africa, thus contributing to the health and welfare of the African people and of all humankind.

The award ceremony will be held to coincide with the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD). The recipient of the Fourth Hideyo Noguchi Africa Prize will be selected in 2022.The first being awarded in 2008, the second in 2013 and the third in August 2019.

The Prize consists of a citation, a medal and an honorarium of 100 million yen.
