Iranian Shares OPCW Award

Iranian Shares OPCW Award

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) announced Dr. Mahdi Balali-Mood of Iran and Dr. Alastair Hay of the UK, as the joint recipients of the second annual OPCW-The Hague Award (2015).
The award recognizes individuals and NGOs that have made an outstanding contribution to help create a world free of chemical weapons, a search that has continued with little success so far, RNA reported.
Balali-Mood is an expert toxicologist who has dedicated his career to the treatment of victims of chemical warfare.  He has been a ceaseless educator on the medical aspects of chemical weapons, working closely with the WHO and OPCW to develop international guidelines that make the strong case against the use of chemical weapons and poison gas during military hostilities.
The recipients will be honored at a presentation ceremony to be held at the OPCW in The Hague, the Netherlands on November 30. The 2015 winners will be presented a medal, a certificate of recognition and a cash prize of €45,000 ($48,300) each.
