The Government of Japan established the Hideyo Noguchi Africa Prize in July 2006 in memory of Dr. Hideyo Noguchi whose contribution to medical advancement and self-sacrificing activities in Africa remain a paragon of professionalism. 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.

Through its partnership with the World Health Organization African region, The Prize is aimed at individuals and organizations active in the field of medical research and medical services in Africa. In the field of medical services in particular, it is required that their activities take place in Africa or that the activities concerned be based in Africa contributing to improvements in the health and welfare of people living in Africa.

This year’s awards focused on Universal Health Care and we are proud as Stowelink to have had one of our papers led by Oduor Kevin, our Chief Programmes Officer, selected as part of the outstanding research work which qualified for this award by the World Health Organization. The paper is titled, INCORPORATING MHEALTH INTERVENTIONS INTO KENYAS HEALTH INFRASTRUCTURE TO AUGMENT UNIVERSAL HEALTH COVERAGE, A SERVICE DELIVERY IMPROVEMENT APPROACH and will soon be available to the public.
