The Commonwealth Youth Health Network (CYHN) is a platform for young people to advocate and engage on global issues related to health, through individual and collective action, as well as through partnerships with other youth structures and key institutions at national and international levels.
Its members are drawn from different sectors, including the medical community, civil society and non-governmental organisations.
CYHN partners with the Commonwealth Secretariat and member countries in achieving health-related development goals – in particular, SDG 3: to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all.
The network was launched in June 2016, at the end of a visioning workshop held at Marlborough House in London. It was established with the support of the Youth Division and the Health and Education Unit of the Commonwealth Secretariat.
Its current Chair is Lucy Fagan of the United Kingdom.
