Introduction
About the Award About the Award

With its rapid development in different parts of the world, traditional Chinese medicine is playing an increasingly important role in the healthcare system in many countries. Against this backdrop, the School of Chinese Medicine of the Hong Kong Baptist University established the International Award for Outstanding Contribution to Chinese Medicine in 2011. The objectives of the Award are to honour scientists and scholars who have made groundbreaking and internationally recognised achievements in advancing the internationalisation of Chinese medicine or Chinese medicine research, and to promote the internationalisation and modernisation of Chinese medicine for the benefit of the global community.

Established with a generous donation from the Cheung On Tak Charity Foundation, the Award is named after Mr. Cheung On Tak.
