Aspiring leaders

A few young rising stars within the PDNA membership will be identified using impartial and transparent criteria. Mechanisms for increasing their international visibility, competitiveness and leadership skills will be devised. Arrangements will be made to give these PDNA members opportunity to be mentored by worldrenowned, internationally recognized leaders in their respective field. They will be supported to attend and participate in important decision making meetings and conferences such as those held by WHO. Seed funding to enable piloting of research ideas and proposal development will be supported. The process will be regularly monitored and evaluated by independent bodies.
