Deadline for Applications: March 20, 2023 | Impact Fellowship for the AstraZeneca Young Health Program 2023
Since 2016, AstraZeneca has collaborated with One Young World through its Young Health Programme (YHP). To identify and support young leaders who are addressing the burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in their local communities. More than 100 young leaders have joined the One Young World Community. And attended the annual One Young World Summit thanks to a scholarship program that powers and delivers it.
This year, AstraZeneca is moving beyond scholarships to support and provide a special YHP Impact Fellowship. That gives the most influential young health professionals access to networks, financing, and development opportunities. To support them in making even more positive change.

About the Impact Fellowship for the AstraZeneca Young Health Program 2023
These amazing young leaders will attend the One Young World Summit in Belfast, UK, in 2023. As a result of their partnership with One Young World, and they will also receive a US $10,000 grant. To support a particular project within their qualified non-profit organization. With a focus on underserved and marginalized groups in low- and middle-income countries. This award will help with the creation and implementation of efficient health promotion programs. We think that having access to networks, opportunities for growth, and money will result in a youth-led global health movement.
The Young Health Program at AstraZeneca – YHP serves as the foundation for and delivery partner for this Fellowship (YHP). The YHP is a vital component of AstraZeneca’s sustainability goal to leverage its skills to make a significant difference in the area where society needs it most—health. The YHP is a worldwide initiative for the prevention of disease that has a special focus on young people, ages 10 to 24, who live in unsafe surroundings and places with little resources. By targeting the major risk factors of tobacco use, harmful alcohol use, physical inactivity, poor diet, and exposure to air pollution. The YHP seeks to prevent the most prevalent non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as cancer, type II diabetes, heart disease, and respiratory illness.
Target 3.4 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which calls for a reduction in premature deaths attributable to NCDs by one third by 2030, is supported by YHP activities.
