Commonwealth young leaders launch new health and human rights networks

Young leaders from across the Commonwealth have come together to establish two new Commonwealth Youth Networks, one focused on Health, and the other on Human Rights and Democracy, through which they will play a strong and active role in delivering the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Commonwealth Youth Health Network (CYHN) and the Commonwealth Human Rights and Democracy Network (CYHRDN) were officially launched last week, at the end of a three-day visioning workshop that gathered around 50 young activists and practitioners from 27 countries across all Commonwealth regions – Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Americas, the Pacific, and Europe.
