Stop TB Partnership - Kochon Prize: 2014

Grant Amount: Consists of a $65,000 award.

The Kochon Prize is awarded annually by Stop TB Partnership to individuals and/or organizations that have made a significant contribution to combating TB. The Kochon Prize, which is endowed by the Kochon Foundation, a non-profit foundation registered in the Republic of Korea, consists of a USD $65,000 award.

The Kochon Prize was established in 2006 in honor of the late Chairman Chong-Kun Lee, founder of the Chong Kun Dang Pharmaceutical Corporation and Kochon Foundation in Korea, who was committed throughout his career to improving access to low-cost lifesaving antibiotics and anti-TB drugs. "Kochon" was a pen name that he used.

The Kochon Foundation, a non-profit organization, is legally and financially independent from the Chong Kun Dang Pharmaceutical Corporation. Chairman Lee emphasized that he had a mission to supply better medicines to everyone who needed them. The Kochon Foundation is unable to supply medicines, but it has been implementing his philosophy. The Kochon Foundation's desire to actively contribute to the fight against TB resulted in the establishment of the 2014 Kochon Prize.
