The Young Health Programme is AstraZeneca’s global community investment initiative. It has a unique focus on young people and primary prevention of the most common non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart and respiratory disease.
Working with other expert organisations and combining on the ground programmes, research and advocacy, it targets the risk behaviours such as tobacco use, alcohol abuse and unhealthy eating that can lead to these diseases in adulthood.
This site is aimed at organisations and individuals who work with young people to provide information on the Young Health Programme and share materials and resources.
