Lead the fight
for healthy families
and youth

Champions for Change is building a movement of champions advocating for improved health outcomes for women, children, newborns, and youth.
Champions for Change invests in visionary local leaders and organizations to sustainably improve health outcomes for women, children and youth in Sub-Saharan Africa. Champions for Change (C4C) achieves large-scale impacts through advocacy, leadership development, organizational strengthening, and grant making. In Nigeria, C4C’s national network is advocating for improved Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child, and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH). In Kenya, C4C works to prevent and combat Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) among young people through locally-led advocacy.  

C4C has partnered with the Young Health Programme to educate youth about non-communicable diseases (NCDs). NCDs arise from long-term behaviors like smoking tobacco, drinking alcohol, unhealthy eating, or inactivity. Chronic diseases, like heart disease, liver disease and diabetes, are very hard to “cure” and can impact a young person’s health for the rest of their life. A young person’s best chance to avoid them is to be aware of the effects of their choices and plan to make healthier choices today.
The Young Health Programme has reached more than 1.2 million young people, and has teamed up with C4C to share, A Path to a Healthier You: A Health Improvement Tool for Youth for young people to help them evaluate their current behaviors and make changes to find their path to a healthier life!
