Antigua and Barbuda, with support from Japan, is enhancing healthcare standards by tackling Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs).

Through a joint effort between the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the local government, a recent training program aimed at combating NCDs was conducted in Japan for health professionals from various island nations, including Antigua and Barbuda.

Facilitated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the program focused on NCD prevention and control, requiring participants to analyze the NCD situation in their respective countries beforehand.

Dr. Anju Smith, representing Antigua and Barbuda, was impressed by Japan’s community health services and plans to introduce worker’s health checkups, inspired by Japan’s approach.

This proposed two-year program will commence in February 2024.
