David and Barbara Roux established the $100,000 Roux Prize in 2013 to reward innovation in the application of disease burden research. The prize recognizes the person who has used health evidence in bold ways to make people healthier – and to highlight just what’s possible when visionaries use health evidence to change lives.
Who can be Nominated
The Roux Prize was created in 2013 to honor individuals or groups from around the world who have used health evidence in bold, innovative and impactful ways.
The Roux Prize is intended for anyone who has used health evidence from the Global Burden of Disease study in innovative ways to improve the health of the population. We welcome diverse entries: winners might be workers within government agencies, researchers at academic institutions, volunteers in charitable organizations, or health providers working in the community.
Nominations are welcomed from across the globe. Preference is given to individuals, but groups are eligible. Self-nominations are discouraged. Current full-time faculty, fellows, or employees of IHME and the University of Washington are not eligible.

Each year, the winner receives $100,000 that can be put toward anything that the winner wishes. Past recipients have used their winnings to fund academic scholarships, their research, or their own life’s causes.
