Just like the world has become a global village with blurred borders, similarly the conventional fields have also started merging. This raises the need of inter sectoral collaboration at a greater scale for the young leaders. We wish to bring together individuals from different fields in a professional capacity to work towards the goal of improving cardiovascular health. Moreover there is an increasing need for interventions in the healthcare industry.
Improve the global cardiovascular health and in turn reduce the mortality and morbidity due to cardiovascular diseases.
According to WHO, Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the number 1 cause of death globally, taking an estimated 17.9 million lives each year. We are targeting cardiovascular health (CVH) in particular due the increasing need for interventions in the field. We are focussing only on CVH because we want to avoid making diffuse and shallow efforts in the entire healthcare field. It is extremely important to make condensed efforts in one direction to achieve something and make a difference.
Any individual under the age of 35 can be a member of WYHF.
Various benefits of being a member of WYHF - India are listed below :-
Currently we have started with the India Chapter of WYHF as a pilot to understand the obstacles faced in establishing such a network. Later on we wish to grow the federation to its true potential and expand globally and gradually have more National Chapters under the umbrella of the Federation.
We believe in the process of ensuring the
process of continuous growth. This will be achieved primarily by the structure of the
organisation. The individual for the position would be elected by the previous EB TD
(Executive Board - Team of Directors) for a period of one year.
This will ensure transparency, constant inflow of new ideas and prevent stagnation of the Federation.Initially the individuals for the leadership positions are being selected, the first members will be the cornerstone of the entire Federation and their respective Committees.
