HCC AND COMSEC National NCD Commission Consultation in St Vincent & the Grenadines

HCC and COMSEC National NCD Commission Consultation in St. Vincent and the Grenadines took place 10-12 August 2016. The Commonwealth Secretariat (COMSEC) is continuing its technical cooperation (TC) with Ministries of Health in Caribbean countries to establish/strengthen multisectoral National Non-Communicable Commissions (NNCDCs). The TC, driven by a recommendation in the CARICOM Heads of Government 2007 Port of Spain Declaration on NCDs, is being carried out in collaboration with the Healthy Caribbean Coalition (HCC). A COMSEC-HCC consultant, Dr. Beverley Barnett, visited St. Vincent & the Grenadines (VCT), aiming to facilitate the piloting of the draft document “A Framework for the Establishment and Strengthening of National NCD Commissions – Towards a More Effective Multisectoral Response to NCDs, Part II” (Implementation Framework or IF); obtain feedback on the document; and identify priority needs for further TC.
