Chinese nephrologist Wang Yaoxian was awarded the Philippine Gusi Peace Prize for 2017 on Wednesday during a ceremony in Manila for his "contributions in the field of medicine."

Wang is now a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, dean of the Beijing Dongzhimen Hospital and director of the Nephrology Institute of Beijing University of Chinese Medicine.

Manson Fok, president of the Gusi Peace Prize Foundation, said Wang "played a demonstration and leadership role in the development of traditional Chinese medicine which makes you highly recognized as a prominent leader in China's healthcare reform by domestic and international medical communities."

"All your significant contributions, accomplishments and achievements have made you a living paradigm for others to emulate, not only in China, but throughout Asia, and the international community," said Fok.

After the ceremony, Wang told Xinhua that winning this Gusi Peace Prize is not only a reward for himself but also a demonstration that the international community now is accepting the traditional Chinese medicine.

"The traditional Chinese medicine is the treasure of China, which solidified thousands of years of medical experiences. Now we can feel the whole world needs traditional Chinese medicine. I think in the future more and more foreign patients will be willing to accept Chinese medical treatment," said Wang.

More than 10 other experts from different countries also won the Gusi Peace Prize for 2017.

The Gusi Peace Prize, founded in 2002, is given by Manila-based Gusi Peace Prize Foundation.

The Gusi Peace Prize Foundation said the prize aims to give honor and awards to distinguished individuals or groups worldwide with contributions to peace and developments in scientific discoveries, performing arts, literature, medicine or physiology, economics and others.
