We are the Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network.

We are +5,000 young people united across 157 countries & growing every day.

In 2011, we wrote a manifesto. Now, we are living it.

Our mission is simple: to mobilize a global community of young leaders to take action against social injustice driven by non-communicable diseases, like cancer & diabetes.

Right now, that means realizing the human right to health through access to essential treatments & disease prevention.

We meet online & in person across the USMexicoKenyaRwandaNigeria, and elsewhere.

We combine our diverse technical expertise--from clinical medicine to pharmaceutical policy to healthcare financing--with direct action advocacy inspired by the AIDS movement to drive change at all levels, from the boardrooms of WHO to city streets on 6 continents.

Join us.
