The Healthy Caribbean Coalition is a civil society alliance to combat chronic diseases.
The alliance was established following a Caribbean civil society led conference on chronic diseases, entitled
Healthy Caribbean 2008 - a wellness revolution conference.
It directly reflects the expressed conviction by
Heads of Government of CARICOM that "the burdens of NCDs can be reduced by comprehensive and integrated
preventive and control strategies to the individual, family, community, national and regional levels and through
collaborative programmes , partnerships and policies supported by governments , private sectors, NGOs and out
other social, regional and international partners.”
