Do you currently live in the Caribbean?

 Hello friends,
Non-communicable Chronic Disease are collectively the largest killers of all humans today. Chances are if you are reading this, you or someone you know will be affected by one. Here's how you can help. The Healthy Caribbean Coalition (HCC) provides a collaborative approach to combat NCDs in the Caribbean Region. Collectively, NCDs include:
Diabetes
Cancers
Cardiovascular diseases 
Chronic respiratory diseases 
These NCDs all share the same risk factors: physical inactivity, unhealthy diets, tobacco use and harmful use of alcohol. 
HOW CAN YOU HELP to put NCDs at the forefront of health discussions with the United Nations and heads of Government.
Directly from the Healthy Caribbean Coalition:

The Get the Message campaign is a mobile phone text based advocacy campaign in support of the United Nations Summit on Chronic Diseases. Digicel and LIME mobile subscribers in the Caribbean can help by sending a FREE TEXT message of support for this Summit.
