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 email@example.com 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.
