Now More Than Ever Regional We Need To Protect Our Children

The Campaign at a Glance
On October 21, 2021, The Healthy Caribbean Coalition (HCC) in collaboration with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), the OECS Commission and UNICEF  launched a regional campaign entitled:  Now More Than Ever: We Need to Protect our Children to promote the overall health and well-being of children and young people, and build support for healthy environments with a focus on increased access to nutritious foods.

The campaign builds on the Now More Than Ever: Better Labels, Better Choices, Better Health campaign implemented in March and April 2021 to mobilize public and policymaker support for the adoption of the octagon shaped warning labels on the front of packaged foods.

The multimedia campaign will run from October 21 to November 26, 2021, across social and digital media platforms in CARICOM Member States, and is part of wider regional multisectoral, multistakeholder advocacy and communication efforts to promote healthy food environments.
