The HCC and partners have been continuing their work in the region aimed at supporting the multisectoral response through the strengthening National NCD Commissions (NNCDCs) or their equivalents. On January 11-12, 2018 Dr. Damian Greaves, Chair Grenada NNCDC and Dr. Sonia Nixon, Senior Medical Officer of Health for NCDs, Grenada and past interim NNCDC chair, visited Barbados for a 2 day site visit/observership with the Barbados National NCD Commission.
This session for us over the last 2 days has been totally engaging and eye opening. I am leaving very ‘buoyed up’ and highly motivated. Dr. Damian Greaves, Chair of the Grenada NNCDC.
I am very grateful to HCC and the Barbados NNCDC. This experience can only enhance the forward movement of the commission. Dr. Sonia Nixon, Senior Medical Officer of Health for NCDs.
