As many of you noticed at the end of 2016, the YP-CDN Community was archived and members merged happily with the NCD community. We also launched a new online platform (ncdaction.org) which provides ways to organize local and global NCD professionals, connect across the network to people who share your interests, experiences, or even neighborhood, and execute advocacy campaigns through a suite of tools and support. If you were a member of the now archived YP-CDN Community or a young professional from this NCD Community, you can join now at ncdaction.org
This year, we look forward to generating more activity here in the NCD Community and helping elevate the voices of young health professionals. We will also focus our energy on expanding our NextGen Leaders program and accelerating our YP Chapters, as well as making progress towards becoming a sustainable organization. We also look ahead to pushing the envelope on global access to medicines and accountability toward achieving the NCD Goals at the United Nations NCD Review in 2018.
We are so grateful to be a part of this NCD Community. We have but one common aim: to create a meaningful impact in communities across the world. On behalf of the entire YP-CDN family, we wish you the very best for the year ahead.
