Childhood Obesity Prevention

Childhood Obesity Prevention

Welcome to the Healthy Caribbean Coalition’s Childhood Obesity Prevention (COP) Portal

Childhood obesity is an emerging crisis globally and in the Caribbean where 1 in 3 children are overweight or obese. These are staggering numbers threaten to undermine the health of entire generations if bold policy and legislative actions are not taken now to create environments supportive of healthier, happier children and adolescents.
The HCC, working with our 100+ members across the region, has identified this as a priority area.
We have taken a number of decisive steps with the support of various partners including the NCD Alliance.
In 2017 we launched our
Civil Society Action Plan 2017-2021: Preventing Childhood Obesity in the Caribbean,
which provides a framework for civil society action
in support of national efforts to prevent and control childhood obesity.
Under this action plan we are working with a range of partners on a number of exciting projects.
