On Saturday, 14th September, 2019, countries across the Region will celebrate Caribbean Wellness Day, 2019.


The annual event is geared at increasing awareness and promoting activities to address non-communicable diseases, which are recognized as a threat to one’s well-being and continue to severely impact the health, economy and development of Caribbean States and countries. For 2019, the focus is on improving the quality of life of the ageing population, with the slogan, 'Healthy Ageing Starts Now'.
