Ce gynécologue congolais Denis Mukwege est lauréat du prix de la paix de SéoulQui sera remis le 6 octobre 2016 a indiqué le journal 'The Korea Times'. Il s'est vu décerner ce prix "pour ses efforts dans l'aide fournie à quelque 48 500 femmes et enfants victimes de violences sexuelles durant la guerre civile en République démocratique du Congo (RDC)", ont indiqué les organisateurs du prix. "Il a contribué à l'amélioration des droits humains pour les femmes et les enfants en traitant les victimes de la guerre non-éthique dans laquelle le viol est utilisé comme arme de guerre", a précisé vendredi la fondation culturelle du prix de la paix de Séoul.
However, in January 2013, he returned to his home country, following the spike in numbers of patients awaiting his help in Panzi Hospital.

The 61-year-old doctor founded the Panzi Hospital in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo in 1999 to help women and girls who had been raped during the conflict then raging in the country.
"The people on the list, each in their own way, have lessons to teach," TIME editor Nancy Gibbs said in a statement accompanying the release of the 2016 TIME 100.
"One way or another they each embody a breakthrough: they broke the rules, broke the record, broke the silence, broke the boundaries to reveal what we're capable of."
Although the Congo war officially ended in 2003, violence between government troops and rebels, some with outside backing, has persisted, particularly in the east, and rape has repeatedly been used as a weapon of war.
Mukwege's hospital has treated more than 46,000 girls and women with gynecological injuries, about half of them victims of sexual violence.k
In 2012 Mukwege escaped unhurt when armed men tried to kill him in one of the most violent parts of the country, but one member of his staff was killed.
He won the Sakharov Prize, Europe's top human rights award, in 2014, and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in the same year. He remains a strong advocate of women's rights in his country.sources Reuters By Magdalena Mis
