NCD Child #YouthCOVIDChat Campaign

Ferdinant from Cameroon NCD Alliance

In an effort to support the youth NCD community during COVID-19 we have launched the #YouthCOVIDChat campaign on Twitter.

This campaign will provide a platform for young people living with or at risk of NCDs to share their stories and experiences during COVID-19, and will further highlight the impact of NCDs on the health and well-being of some of the most vulnerable populations during this pandemic.

As COVID-19 will be shaping our future for the decades to come, it is now more important than ever to ensure youth voices are heard.

We hope you will join us in amplifying the voices of young people in the NCD community!

Follow along here and @NCDChild to hear what young people have to say.

An open letter calls on UN climate agency to protect COP from corporate greenwashing

The world is increasingly at risk of “climate apartheid”, where the rich pay to escape heat and hunger caused by the escalating climate crisis while the rest of the world suffers, a report from a UN human rights expert has said.

Philip Alston, UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, said the impacts of global heating are likely to undermine not only basic rights to life, water, food, and housing for hundreds of millions of people, but also democracy and the rule of law.
