On Saturday 14th September 2019, countries across the region celebrate Caribbean Wellness Day.
Healthy ageing is important to all of us at every stage of our lives. While healthy ageing starts at birth, and is influenced by genetics, a large percentage of our interactions with our physical and social environments, can shape our behaviours and experiences across our life course.
For this reason, Caribbean Wellness Day 2019 focuses on improving the quality of life of the ageing population, with the slogan, Healthy Ageing Starts Now.
Caribbean Wellness Day (CWD) is observed every year on the second Saturday of September. The annual event is geared at increasing awareness and promoting activities to address non-communicable diseases (NCDs), which are recognised as a threat to one’s wellbeing, and continue to severely impact the health, economy and development of Caribbean countries and territories.
