Young Health Programme Impact Fellowship

Deadline: 20 March 2023
Open to: applicants aged 18 – 30 demonstrating positive impact related to tackling non-communicable diseases among youth
Benefits: $10,000 USD grant


This year, AstraZeneca is going beyond Scholarships to power and deliver a unique YHP Impact Fellowship that provides development opportunities, access to networks, and funding to help the most impactful young health leaders to help them create even more positive change.

By collaborating with One Young World, these inspiring young leaders will attend the One Young World Summit 2023 in Belfast, UK and receive a US $10,000 grant to contribute to a specific project within their eligible non-profit organisation. This grant will assist in the development and delivery of effective health promotion programmes, with an emphasis on under-resourced and marginalised communities in low- and middle-income countries. That access to networks, development, and funding will lead to a global health movement led by, and for, young people.

That’s why a bespoke YHP Impact Fellowship is being created, which will enable selected young non-profit leaders to receive:

This Fellowship is powered by and delivered in partnership with AstraZeneca’s Young Health Programme (YHP). The YHP is a core part of AstraZeneca’s sustainability ambition to use its capabilities to make a meaningful impact where society needs it – health. The YHP is a global disease prevention programme with a unique focus on young people aged 10 to 24, living in vulnerable environments and under-resourced settings around the world. The YHP aims to prevent the most common non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as cancer, type II diabetes, heart disease and respiratory disease by addressing the primary risk factors – tobacco use, harmful use of alcohol, physical inactivity, unhealthy diet and exposure to air pollution.

YHP activities support the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goal Target 3.4 – to reduce premature deaths linked to NCDs by one third by 2030.
