This May 4-7, 2017, the Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network (YP-CDN) and RTI International will host a NextGen Leaders for Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) workshop in Rwanda.

The NextGen Leaders program seeks to build capacity and leadership among aspiring advocates and policymakers in the field of NCDs by delivering skills, knowledge, and networks to improve NCD prevention and control.

During this workshop, participants will learn skills and create strategies to build accountability of governments and other stakeholders to deliver on their national commitments for NCDs, looking toward the 2018 UN High-level Meeting on NCDs.

At the workshop, the NCD Alliance will be sharing advocacy and accountability insights as well as more information on Our Views, Our Voices initiative to meaningfully involve people living with NCDs.
