Laureates say publicity from honour is helping save lives in developing nation

THE EFFORT TO eradicate cholera has been given a major boost thanks to the latest Prince Mahidol Awards. 

Dr John Clemens and Dr Jan Holmgren, winners of the 2018 Prince Mahidol Awards in the field of public health, said that not only did the award help them find funding in their fight against cholera, it also raised public awareness of this deadly but preventable disease. They said this knowledge was most needed in poor developing countries. 

Clemens is director of International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research in Bangladesh, while his colleague on oral cholera vaccine (OCV) research and development, Holmgren, is a professor of Medical Microbiological and Immunology at Gothenburg University Vaccine Research Institute in Sweden.
