The Prince Mahidol Award (Thai: พระราชทานรางวัลสมเด็จเจ้าฟ้ามหิดล) is a Thai Royal Family annual award for outstanding achievements in medicine and public health worldwide.

Prince Mahidol Award Foundation[edit]

King Rama IX Bhumibol Adulyadej founded the Prince Mahidol Award Foundation on 1 January 1992 on the occasion of the 100th Anniversary of the birth of his father, Prince Mahidol, first under the name "Mahidol Award Foundation", since 28 July 1997 as "Prince Mahidol Award Foundation." In addition to the actual award, the Fund also promotes the memory of Prince Mahidol, who is regarded as the father of modern medicine and public health of Thailand.

Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn is chairman of the Foundation Committee.

The award is given annually in two categories to international personalities and organizations:

  • For outstanding progress in medicine
  • For the active promotion of public health.

Between 1992 and 2014, 70 prizes were awarded, including 32 in medicine and 38 in public health.[1]

The Prince Mahidol Award consists of

  • a medal
  • a certificate
  • prize money (US $100,000)

Nomination process[edit]

  1. Any individual or group of individuals may be nominated by a national governmental agency, or by an individual. Nominations are transmitted to the secretary-general of the Prince Mahidol Award Foundation.
  2. The nomination forms are forwarded to the Scientific Advisory Committee for initial screening.
  3. Once screened, the International Award Committee, which comprises several world-renowned experts in the fields of medicine and public health, will consider them and make recommendations to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
