RAISING THE NEW GENERATION OF NCDs AMBASSADORS AND PEER EDUCATORS

Shortly after participating actively in the launch of the Young Health Programme in Kenya, Stowelink has actively been engaged in training the next generation of peer educators for this project in Kenya. Last week, our founder and CEO Ogweno Stephen who also happens to have been a peer educator in the young health programme was involved in training the new wave of peer educators on non-communicable diseases.  when asked about why this training was important, Ogweno stated that young people and young people’s energy need to be harnessed and incorporated in the fight against non communicable diseases. young people are the leaders, the ambassadors and the advocates that will take the fight against non communicable diseases to the next level. Therefore, we must equip them with data, information and toolkits to be able to champions for the reduction of non-communicable disease.

The AstraZeneca Young Health Programme works to help young people aged 10-24 to take control of their health, especially to combat long-term conditions such as cancers, diabetes, respiratory and heart diseases, and mental ill health. These are often called non-communicable diseases (NCDs). In Kenya, the programme is implemented by Plan International Kenya.
