Professor Brian Greenwood awarded first Hideyo Noguchi Africa Award
Date:5/27/2008

irperson of Kenyas National AIDS Control Council, will also deliver a commemorative lecture at the United Nations University in Tokyo at 1000 (Japan time) on Thursday 29 May. Professor Greenwoods contribution will focus on whether the eradication of malaria is possible.

Professor Greenwood comments: I am very honoured to have received this prize from the Japanese Government which honours the contribution of Dr. Hideyo Noguchi to tropical medicine. This award recognises not just my contribution but that of the many colleagues from Africa and elsewhere in the world with whom I have been fortunate to work in Africa for over 40 years. I am exploring ways in which this generous award can be used most effectively to support young African scientists in the fight against the major infectious diseases such as malaria, pneumonia and meningitis which still kill over two million African children every year.

Professor Malegapuru William Makgoba, Vice-Chancellor & Principal of Kawzulu Natal University, and Chair of the Medical Services Selection Sub-Committee, summarized the importance of the Hideyo Noguchi Prize thus: In combining research and service excellence with strong human values of dignity, the prize has opened a new approach . . . With a reward value of 1m USD for each of the two categories, the Noguchi Africa Prize already rivals any of the major established scientific awards making it highly competitive and sought after. The Prize has excited and captured the imagination of the world, particularly the scientific community. It represents a new hope for a world yearning for human rights, human dignity, equality and transparency.
