Pinoy Doctor Receives Ramon Magsaysay Award

A Filipino doctor was honored with a Ramon Magsaysay Award, Asia’s equivalent of the Nobel Prize, on August 31, 2013. 

Ernesto Domingo, a 76-year-old National Scientist, was honored for his medical work against hepatitis.

The Board of Trustees of the Ramon Magsaysay Award Foundation (RMAF) said Domingo was recognized for "his exemplary embrace of the social mission of medical science and his profession, his steadfast leadership in pursuing 'health for all' as a shared moral responsibility of all sectors, and his groundbreaking and successful advocacy for neonatal hepatitis vaccination, thereby saving millions of lives in the Philippines.”

Dr. Domingo received a certificate, a medallion, and a cash prize of $50,000 each at the awarding ceremony at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
