More Moments, More Memories, More Life - This is the fundamental message behind the Jamaica Moves campaign, aiming to engage Jamaicans in practices that can extend their life expectancy by reducing the risk of non-communicable diseases.
The fact is, non - communicable diseases account for almost 70% of deaths in Jamaica each year. Fortunately, most NCDs - such as diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers - are a direct result of our lifestyle choices. Jamaica Moves will therefore encourage a much needed change in our habits: 30 minutes of daily physical activity along with proper nutrition. “More life” is something we all want for ourselves, our friends, and our families, so please support us on this journey as we move towards a healthier Jamaica.
