The State of Kuwait Prize for Research in Health Promotion

The State of Kuwait Prize for Research in Health Promotion was established in 2004, and is awarded to one or more persons, institutions or nongovernmental organizations that have made an outstanding contribution to research in health promotion.

The prize, consisting of a certificate of award, a plaque from the Founder and a sum of money which will not exceed US$40 000, is awarded at a special ceremony during the World Health Assembly.

Procedure for the proposal and selection of candidates

Any national health administration of a Member State of the World Health Organization, or any former recipient of the prize, may nominate a candidate for the award. Proposals are made to the Director-General, who submits them to the Foundation Selection Panel together with his/her technical comments. The Selection Panel meets to decide on the recommendation to be made to the Executive Board, which designates the recipient (or recipients) of the prize.
