Bernhard Nocht Medal

The Circle of Friends finances the awarding of the Bernhard Nocht Medal. The medal was donated in 1925 by the Association of Friends of the Tropical Institute. It is now awarded jointly by the Bernhard Nocht Institute and the German Society for Tropical Medicine and International Health to scientists in recognition of outstanding achievements in the field of tropical medicine. The award winners are invited to a ceremony and a public lecture in Hamburg.
