The Global Goals for Sustainable Development

Healthy Caribbean Coalition Releases Reports on Partnerships for Prevention and Control of NCDs

The Healthy Caribbean Coalition, in support of partnerships to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, is pleased to release four reports to coincide with the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit 2015, September 25-27 - a momentous occasion of global consensus around the 2030 agenda.
A Civil Society Report on National NCD Commissions in the Caribbean: Towards a more Effective Multisectoral Response to NCDs. Part I
1.	A Civil Society Report on National NCD Commissions in the Caribbean: Towards a more Effective Multisectoral Response to NCDs. Part I
The report provides a detailed assessment and analysis of the status of CARICOM National NCD Commissions and makes recommendations for their future structure and roles as key instruments of national coordinated multisectoral action, based on varying country contexts and realities.  The report represents civil society’s contribution to strengthening the multisectoral approach and will be used by the HCC to advocate for, and support National NCD Commissions in CARICOM and beyond.

A Framework for the Establishment and Strengthening of National NCD Commissions: Towards a more Effective Multisectoral Response to NCDs. Part II * Available on October 9 2015
The Framework is a user-friendly tool, which provides practical guidance for the establishment and strengthening of NNCDCs as informed by the experiences of past and existing NNCDCs in the region. Much of the background for Part II is found in Part I and thus the documents complement and support each other.  The Framework, Part II, is designed as an action-oriented resource to be used by those charged with the task of leading and participating on NCD Commissions: including Ministries of Health, Non-health Ministries, existing NNCDC Chairs and Commissioners, and other key partners such as civil society and the private sector.
The Caribbean Private Sector Response to Non Communicable Diseases (NCDs): A Situational Analysis and Framework for Action
The report is a Situational Analysis and Framework for Action and represents, to our knowledge, the first documentation of the knowledge, attitudes and practices of the Caribbean private sector’s involvement in the prevention and control of NCDs. It details the experiences of Caribbean business with worksite wellness programmes and the attitudes of businesses towards provision of working environments that prevent NCDs and care for those already affected by them.
It also examines engagement of companies on a corporate level with community, national, regional and international NCD prevention and control programmes and it assesses the readiness of the business and industrial sector for future involvement. Finally the report incorporates a framework for action that was discussed at the private sector consultation and refined thereafter. This framework presents a way forward for the business and industrial sector to engage with government and civil society in the public health arena with respect to NCDs.

Measuring and Engaging the Business Sector Response to NCDs: The Caribbean NCD Private Sector Forum Meeting Report
Measuring and Engaging the Business Sector Response to NCDs: The Caribbean NCD Private Sector Forum Meeting Report
This is a meeting report of the The Caribbean Private Sector Forum held on 4th June, 2015. The meeting of regional business executives, representing a wide cross section of industries, was aimed at creating a platform for sharing of experiences and dialogue around greater engagement of the region’s corporate sector in the multisectoral response to the prevention and control of NCDs. 
The primary objectives of the Forum were to provide an opportunity for senior business executives to discuss mechanisms for implementing and strengthening private sector-led workplace wellness programmes and outward facing community initiatives; and to explore strategies to strengthen the capacity for public private partnerships (PPPs) through more effective interaction with government and civil society.
