The burden of chronic diseases, particularly diabetes is increasing among the OECS Member States, with an estimated 1 in every 4 persons over the age of 40 being affected. With the staggering projected incidence rates for obesity, it is predicted that this figure will continue to increase in the region.
Addressing chronic disease prevention and control requires a systematic and comprehensive approach, that includes creating supportive environments for population-based health enhancement, as well as behavioural changes that promote overall wellness and disease prevention.
The competition is aimed at promoting “Your 2019 healthier lifestyle” from the citizens of St. Lucia.
