Yale Network for Global Non-Communicable Diseases

(NGN- pronounced “engine”)

Mission Statement

We are next-generation investigators — junior Yale faculty who have joined together to form a transdisciplinary, collaborative, on-campus network that addresses the global scourge of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). Our work in research, advocacy, policy, implementation, and education spans cultures and communities across the world- from here in New Haven to Asia, the Pacific Islands, and East Africa.

NGN was a recipient of the 2018 Hecht Global Health Faculty Network Award for our work in Self-Care of Chronic Conditions in Uganda.
