Ministry of Health commemorates Caribbean Wellness Week

Ministry of Health commemorates Caribbean Wellness Week

The Ministry of Health along with various partners in the
promotion of health and wellness is celebrating Caribbean Wellness Week under the slogan,
“Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Aging”. The slogan chosen this year is focused on improving the
quality of life in the aging population. Caribbean Wellness Day is celebrated on the second
Saturday in September; however, due to our national celebrations, we are commemorating
Caribbean Wellness Week from 22nd September to 25th September, 2015.

The Ministry has organized activities for the entire week including visits to various morning talk
shows and health walks. The highlight event for the week is a Health and Wellness Open Day
which will be held on Thursday September 24th, 2015 at the Battlefield Park, downtown Belize
City. An official ceremony for that event starts at 9:00am. The Health and Wellness Open Day is
supported by several partnering agencies including the Wellness and Spa Association. Similar
health and wellness day activities will also be held in the regions across the country in
collaboration with Aging Associations throughout this week such as a senior citizen activity in
Orange Walk today.

Letters were also sent to organizations, agencies and workplaces encouraging them to have
wellness activities for their workers. Some ideas include a walk-to-work day, healthy snacks,
health checks and health education sessions.

Belize along with the Caribbean region celebrates Caribbean Wellness Day annually, engaging
in various activities to reinforce health messages that promote wellness. Caribbean Wellness Day
(CWD), established by the CARICOM Heads of Government, commemorates their landmark
Summit held on September 15, 2007 in Port of Spain, Trinidad to discuss the social and
economic burden of CNCDs on the people of the region. The Ministry of Health reminds the
general population to reduce the intake of sugars, fats and salts and exercise a least three times a
week.

“A Health and Wellness Message from Your Ministry of Health”
