The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) was recently awarded the International Kochon Prize 2017 for its contribution to the national programme in Tuberculosis research.

The Kochon Prize is awarded annually by Stop TB Partnership to individuals or organizations that have made a significant contribution to combating tuberculosis. The award comprises prize money worth $ 65,000.
