Caribbean Wellness DayDesigned especially for schools, this fact sheet is one of five produced for the celebration of Caribbean Wellness Day 2009 on 12 September. The series was created to generate awareness on the impact of chronic noncommunicable diseases (CNCDs) in the Caribbean with the aim of reducing risk factors and promoting better health. This particular sheet suggests how schools might go about promoting healthy behaviors among children and adolescents and thus contribute to their better health throughout their life. It also contains data from the WHO Global School Health Survey (GSHS).
