We believe building effective leadership for the next generation will allow us to multiply change for NCDs -- change in the form of social transformation and policy solutions that will save lives.
Our global community needs healthcare leaders who are aware of the nuances of NCDs and what it takes to drive an effective response. YP-CDN is uniquely positioned to recruit, prepare, and support the next generation of healthcare leaders.
How we develop leadership:
Our NextGen Leaders program is a 'train-the-trainer' model in which we work closely with emerging leaders (across multiple disciplines) within our membership, to provide them with the skills, knowledge, and networks to change the current situation around NCDs-- with our first cohort now focused on improving access to essential treatment for NCDs in East Africa.
Workshops, training materials, dedicated mentorship and practical experience placements within key NCD policy and research institutions will equip emerging leaders with the tools to lead advocacy and action on NCDs, while providing the technical knowledge and evidence needed to lead lasting health improvements. We are confident that after completing the program, these young leaders will be able to apply technical and organizing skills to influence public policy on the right to health.
