Why NextGen Leaders Kenya?
We believe the fastest, most effective way to make NCD medicines more affordable and more available is to train the next generation of leaders on how to change the policies and societal practices that prevent equal access to treatments. One policy change can positively impact the lives of thousands. However, changing a policy requires certain knowledge and skills.
That’s why, with help from dozens of experts who volunteered their time, we’ve designed a training program—called YP-CDN NextGen Leaders—that gives emerging leaders a toolkit for addressing a lack of access to affordable NCD treatment in low and middle-income countries.
The training has been tested and proven to work. We have the toolkit, the trainers, and 30 talented young leaders in Kenya who are ready to combat NCDs and improve access to NCD medicines in their communities.
