Applications are open for Young Health Programme Scholarship 2018 that is a global community investment initiative that addressing the growing burden of non-communicable disease (NCDs) conditions like type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart and respiratory disease.
Through YHP, aims to engage and empower young people with information so that they can make healthy choices today that will lead to better health later in life.
But YHP is not just about health education and promotion. They work with NCD Child, Rise Up Together and Plan International UK to put adolescent health on the healthcare agenda. they invest in research to generate new evidence that fills the gaps in their knowledge about adolescent health and risk behavior activity. And most importantly, work to provide youth with a voice. Youth are at the core of everything do. Young people have a powerful voice in identifying their own health needs as well as planning and delivering solutions. As Alyssa Frampton, YHP Youth Ambassador and One Young World Ambassador says, health cannot be “about us, without us.”
The scholarship is looking for young people who work for or are involved with a non-governmental organisation, social enterprise, community based organization, or who are individuals making an impact through advocacy activities or direct programming related to adolescent health. The successful scholars will join ten other YHP delegates who are already involved with the programme, as peer educators, advocates, NGO partners or community youth leaders. In addition to attending the Summit, YHP scholars will participate in a pre-Summit workshop to meet the delegation, share information about their background and get prepared for what will be an incredible experience in The Hague.
