NCD Child introduces new Young Leaders Program

We are excited to present our new Young Leaders Program (YLP)!

The YLP is a two-year leadership program created to support young people aged 19-30 to scale up their leadership capacity, increase engagement in non-communicable disease (NCD) related advocacy and sustain a strong youth voice within the NCD landscape. The program serves as a platform for advocacy skill building, a project incubator, and a platform to build a unified cadre of young people who are fully equipped to develop, critique, and support national, regional, and global NCD policies.

The first cohort of the program is made up of 25 outstanding Young Leaders from 20 countries in all six WHO regions. Each Young Leader brings a unique perspective and skill-set in different areas of NCDs.

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.
