LAUREATES

Beginning in 2022, the Virchow Prize for Global Health laureates will be announced annually on the 13th of October. This occasion commemorates the birthday of Rudolf Virchow (1821-1902), eponym of the Prize.

Each year, no more than three candidates – individuals, organisations or institutions – will be awarded the Virchow Prize for Global Health granted by the Virchow Foundation for Global Health.

Final selection of the laureates will be proposed following a majority vote by the Virchow Prize Committee. Within the selection process, the Virchow Prize Committee will elaborate from all nominations a short list of candidates. Expert reviewers and advisers may be invited by the Virchow Prize Committee as part of the selection process.

The Virchow Prize Committee is formed at the invitation of the Virchow Foundation for Global Health. The committee is chaired by the President of the Foundation.
