Demand Generation: YCNTDs NNN2023 Youth Side Panel

On 19-21 September 2023, Youth Combating NTDs (YCNTDs), supported by Uniting to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases (UTC), attended the 14th annual NTD NGO Network Conference (NNN2023) where we were invited to host the first youth side event of the platform.

Our event was titled Demand Generation: The Role of Youth in Creating a Movement to End NTDs. It gathered young NTD advocates and practitioners at the conference to:

  1. Shift the focus of the broader NTD discussion from research to practice by highlighting the lived experiences of practitioners in various contexts.
  2. Increase the demand for NTD service in endemic countries, particularly by youth groups.
  3. Expose the cross-sectoral link between NTDs and emerging global health priorities such as Climate Change, Universal Health Coverage (UHC), and Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness, and Response (PPPR).

The summary of the event is available here.
