To foster its commitment to improving health worldwide, the Biocodex Microbiota Foundation launched in 2021 the Henri Boulard Award. 

Henri Boulard is the famous French microbiologist who discovered the yeast Saccharomyces boulardii in the 1920s in Indochina and its virtues against diarrhoea. The Henri Boulard Award is dedicated to improving the management of disorders associated with microbiota. 

Because Gut Microbiota is more and more considered an organ, it deserves to be protected. Actions such as educational programs, water purification, farming projects may preserve the organ integrity and may avoid the disorders associated with microbiota dysfunction. 

That is why the Henri Boulard Award wants to support 3 initiatives from 3 geographical areas: Asia, Latin America and Middle East Africa.
