Young Leaders for Health

Fostering Global Health through Education, Research and Advocacy.

Young Leaders for Health is an organization for and by students and young professionals. We conduct conferences and workshops, get involved in the broader global health dialogue and aim to develop solutions to the most pressing global health needs.

Our activities are carried out through various project groups. There is the YLH Conference taking place in August and combining a comprehensive workshop and lecture program with a simulation of the World Health Assembly. We hold a 24-Hour-Social-Entrepreneurship-Challenge in spring. We organize think tank like groups to gain deep understandings of certain global health issues and find new solutions and we engage with the broader global health community to learn and advocate.

We welcome everyone, who is passionate or just wants to learn about Global Health in our community. If you just want to get to know us and don’t know where to start, we hold a  Stammtisch (regulars’ table) every few weeks. You should find the announcement of our next Stammtisch on our website.
