I believe the Young Leader's for Health eHealth challenge provides an opportunity catalysing collective intelligence and user centred design, drawing on the skills and experience of some of the world's leading youth health advocates. Having worked at the intersection of inequalities and NCDs for several years, I have become increasingly passionate about addressing these diseases at their roots and empowering communities to take ownership of their health. My experience in health technology has shown me the incredible potential for the development of cross cutting innovative solutions to some of our biggest health challenges, with the risk that technology will perpetuate inequalities rather than address them driving me to ensure the most ethical and equitable technology development. The complex nature of NCDs means they require us to break down our traditional silos of working and ensure the wider determinants of health are considered in everything from education to urban planning - a goal I hope to support our participants in reaching.
