In light of the recent discussion in YP on criminalizing homosexuality in
Uganda, we believe it is crucially important to take a firm stand against
non-discrimination in all forms as a matter of fundamental human rights and
a core value of our community.
The leadership and concerned members of this community have prepared a
non-discrimination statement to this effect.
We invite you to view the statement here:
Our community was formed initially with just 12 members across 2 countries
five years ago; and now features 2028 members in 126 countries.
Targeting social and societal injustice is inherent to our mission, our
purpose and the basic ties that bind us a global community committed to
social change. We do not discriminate based on gender, age, disability,
race, religion, or sexual orientation.
Our mission statement is: "To build a cohesive, diverse and young global
community who will drive policy, research, and social change for a healthy
and equitable future. Our mission is accomplished through action targeting
the social injustice levied by non-communicable diseases (NCDs)."
