A fresh appeal has been made to heads of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) for the implementation of a regional health scheme as the region faces a rise in Chronic Non Communicable Diseases (CNCDs).

Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit made the call at the 62nd OECS Authority Meeting which is currently underway in Dominica.

According to the Dominica News Online, Prime Minister Skerritt said when persons are affected by Chronic Non Communicable Diseases, in many cases, their personal financial reserves and the country suffer, but if this regional approach is realized, beneficiaries would be better served.
