The secretariat of the intergovernmental organization the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has reiterated its commitment to national health programmes.

In a statement on Saturday to mark Caribbean Wellness Day the regional body will continue working closely with Member States, institutions and other health partners to promote and advocate for health policies that will promote healthier communities for all citizens in the region.

The statement from the CARICOM secretariat added that the residual effects of COVID-19 continue to impact the Region’s health, with mental health care pinpointed as a pressing need for young people.

‘Power Through Collective Action’, was agreed as the overarching theme for Caribbean Wellness Day from 2020-2024.

The objectives of Caribbean Wellness Day 2023 were to advocate for policies that promote healthy behaviours in Caribbean people at the community, institutional, national and regional levels.
