World Health Assembly
Join us on May 26 at 9 a.m. ET for a special SwitchPoint Virtual Exchange with the SwitchPoint Future League. Coinciding with World Health Assembly week, members of the Future League will host an inclusive and interactive event highlighting what they have learned and what they are working toward.
IntraHealth International, The Global Fund, and ONE Campaign Africa selected six outstanding young leaders from six African countries for the SwitchPoint Future League, a consortium of young people leading the way toward a healthier future.
The 2022 Future League members are committed and inspiring and they are making real change. Members include a drone pilot who helps deliver medication, a health economist, an epidemiologist and global health security specialist, a cutting-edge multimedia artist, a renowned singer-songwriter, and a nurse/advocacy leader.
Together, they are using their unique voices and perspectives to raise awareness among their peers and world leaders about the critical importance of prioritizing health, health financing, global health security, and health access and equity for all. Throughout the year, they are sending in transmissions that dig into pressing health issues through interviews with their peers, policy leaders, children, artists, and other advocates and are making a creative and powerful stand for the healthy future we all hope for.
Be part of shaping the future we all want and share your ideas and dreams with us. The program will feature transmissions, interviews, special performances, and a high-level panel about the health challenges we’re facing today and their solutions.
