Healthy Caribbean Coalition – Childhood Obesity Prevention Petition

30 Apr 2018

Research shows that 1 in every 3 Caribbean children is overweight or obese, putting them at risk for Type 2 Diabetes and high blood pressure and for heart disease, cancer and diabetes as they move into adult life. This is no longer a problem for a few families, but the issue is becoming increasingly challenging for many.

WHF members the Healthy Caribbean Coalition (HCC) and over 100 Civil Society Organisations across the region are calling for changes in lifestyle and national policies that are expected to significantly reduce Childhood Obesity. But they need YOUR SUPPORT!

This Petition will be presented to the region’s Heads of Government at the CARICOM Summit in July.  So click the link below to sign the petition and then share this link with as many people as possible. Your voice matters!
