Health Minister Dr. Christopher Tufton at the 71st Session of the World Health Assembly

Primary tabs

Our esteemed Health Minister Dr. Christopher Tufton has been attending the 71st Session of the World Health Assembly and had the opportunity to speak on non-communicable diseases (NCDs) – an issue he has been waging a public education campaign on for some time now through his Jamaica Moves and other initiatives. Here are some updates on his activities and comments at the Assembly. I have merged two press releases from the Ministry here. For more information, please contact Petre Williams Raynor at raynorp@moh.gov.jm Tel: (876 ) 633-8174. N.B. I think I will have to start following in the Minister’s footsteps everywhere. He is losing an enviable amount of weight and is regularly seen now in a sweaty T-shirt. Perhaps I might lose some weight too. However, the concept of “behavior change” is, I do feel, easier said than done. I wish I could change mine.
