Who We Are


The Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network (YP-CDN) is a global network of emerging leaders who drive non-communicable disease (NCD) policy, research, capacity building, and social change.

We believe NCDs – including cancer, heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes, as well as their shared risk factors tobacco, alcohol and junk food – are fundamental matters of social and economic justice and they present significant challenges for the global health community.

By harnessing the talents and energies of the next generation of health leaders, YP-CDN is building a movement – part social, part technical – that is rooted in the evidence, experience, and insights of our members across the globe.
