We are committed to tackle the burden of NCDs in Africa. To achieve our goals, we are recruiting actively working members to YPCDN chapter in Ethiopia. This will enable us to grasp innovative ideals from multidisciplinary teams comprised of physicians, nurses, of pharmacists and other health professionals.

Our members are also engaged in institutional based researches to support health policy-makers to provide pooled evidence, which allows us to exercise advocacy role. We are moving forward to evaluate availability and affordability of essential anticancer medications in the nation.
