AwardsWe are proud to celebrate and honor the achievements of experts in public health around the world. With the support of our partners, we offer two awards to promote this work: the Roux Prize and the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) Emerging Researcher Award.
David and Barbara Roux established the $100,000 Roux Prize in 2013 to reward innovation in the application of disease burden research. The prize recognizes the person who has used health evidence in bold ways to make people healthier – and to highlight just what’s possible when visionaries use health evidence to change lives.
The GBD Emerging Researcher Award was created in 2020 to support emerging global health researchers to carry out innovative research to improve the measurement and knowledge of burden of disease in populations.
The University of Washington makes one award annually with the winner receiving US$5,000.
