These young leaders use their unique voices and perspectives to raise awareness among their peers and world leaders about the importance of prioritizing health—and of transparent, effective domestic financing for health services. Together they’re carving a new, clearer path toward sustainable health services for all. The SwitchPoint Future League brings together young leaders from diverse backgrounds, working across multiple industries. They are a drone pilot, a health economist, a nurse, a dancer, an epidemiologist/global health security specialist, and a renowned musical artist. Now they’re making a stand for young people and the healthy future we all hope for.

Their goals: Stronger global health security. An equitable end to the COVID-19 pandemic. Making domestic health financing a priority. Better, more widely available health services for all. Support for the health workforce and health innovators of the future, including fair pay for all health workers and an end to the volunteer model in community health care. A voice at the table for youth in all national and international decisions regarding global and domestic health policy. The SwitchPoint Future League is a partnership with IntraHealth International, The Global Fund, and ONE Campaign Africa.
