INVITATION TO JOIN A LANCET YOUTH COMMISSION ON ESSENTIAL MEDICINES
In November 2014, the Lancet launched a Commission on Essential Medicines Policies. Composed of 19 leading experts in the area, it will reconfirm the crucial role of essential medicines policies in achieving universal health coverage, and formulate recommendations for the evolution of these policies over the next two decades.
Following the establishment of the Commission on Essential Medicines Policies, a group of young people from different student organisations have proposed to establish a Youth Commission on Essential Medicines Policies (YCEM) to the primary Commission. The Commission and the Lancet supports the creation of a Youth Commission, which will provide input to the primary Commission on issues that these future leaders hold as important, as well as supplementing the primary Commission’s evidence gathering, and creating a parallel independent report.
We are now inviting applications to join the Youth Commission from young people with an interest in health. The primary Commission has already begun work, and so the Youth Commission must convene soon.
The deadline for applications is the 15th of February 23:59 (GMT).
