Uniting to Stop the NCD Epidemic - Time to Accelerate Action - Regional Workshop
This key regional workshop in February will bring together experts and activists to tackle NCDs.

Caribbean leaders have long recognised the threat and in 2007 the CARICOM Heads of Government endorsed the Port of Spain Declaration on NCDs. Now this ground-breaking Declaration, the first by Heads of Government in the world, is being evaluated by a team of experts led by the University of the West Indies, on behalf of CARICOM and the Pan American Health Organisation.
