Dr. Denis Mukwege selected for 2014 Inamori Ethics Prize
Date:5/21/2014

CLEVELAND, OHIOWhen Dr. Denis Mukwege was growing up in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), he would accompany his father, a Pentecostal minister, on visits to comfort sick people in his community.

The desire to heal those for whom his father prayed inspired a life's devotion to do the same through medicine.

Mukwege, 59, a deeply committed physician and human rights activist, has worked tirelessly with and for women who have suffered excruciatingly traumatic and violent attacks in the name of war.

Panzi has become a beacon of hope for thousands of women. Patients who can't afford care are treated for free. He has persisted in his mission, despite attacks on his life. As a result, he and his colleagues have treated more than 40,000 rape survivors.

For a life's commitment to such important humanitarian efforts, the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, (USA) has selected Mukwege for the 2014 Inamori Prize for Ethics, awarded annually since 2008 to honor an individual for significant and lasting contributions to ethical leadership on the global stage.

The Inamori Center presents the Inamori Ethics Prize Ceremony as part of its mission to foster ethical leadership. Mukwege is scheduled to receive the award during ceremonies at the Case Western Reserve campus on Oct. 1. The prize event will be free and open to the public and will take place in the newly built Tinkham Veale University Center.

"Dr. Mukwege is a man of great courage and integrity," said Inamori Center Director Shannon E. French. "The problems he addresses evoke such feelings of horror that most people a
