Virchow Foundation for Global Health
The Virchow Foundation for Global Health is a private foundation, which strives to promote and anchor awareness of global health issues, both nationally and internationally, and contribute to the improvement of health worldwide. A key pillar of the Foundation’s activities includes the awarding of the Virchow Prize for Global Health, a prestigious award which honours lifetime achievements with a sustainable impact on the broad field of global health. The Prize will be awarded for the first time on October 15, 2022.
