RESUMEN

The Jamaica Moves programme is a comprehensive health promotion campaign that embraces the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion and utilizes all its tenets to create a vibrant sustainable behaviour change model to tackle the risk factors for Non Communicable diseases. The programme corrals a variety of activities that makes conditions favourable for behaviour change through advocacy for health and providing access to information to enable all people to reach their fullest health potential by taking control of those things that determine their health, while, bearing in mind the responsibility of the Ministry of Health to mediate between differing interests in society for the pursuit of health. The programme cuts across all sectors of society, targeted at the individual, interpersonal, organizational, community and national levels. Jamaica Moves started at a national level, aiming at changing behaviour in the general public towards increasing the level of physical activity. Since implementation, the initial concept has been expanded to target three main areas: Physical inactivity, healthy nutrition and promotion of routine health checks for the general population. Health is created and lived by people within the settings of their everyday life; where they learn, work, play and live. Health is created by caring for oneself and for others, and by enabling the individual to take decisions and have control over one's life circumstances, and by ensuring that the society one lives in creates conditions that allow the attainment of health by all its constituents.

RESUMEN

This issue is a reminder that prevention is better than cure: prevention in the form of immunization, leading a healthy lifestyle and regular medical evaluation. Prevention ensures the health of individuals, families, communities and the health system and leads to a healthy population for development. Jamaica has made great gains in the prevention of communicable diseases through immunization. Diseases such as polio, measles, rubella and diphtheria have not been seen in Jamaica for decades, eliminating deaths and disabilities associated with these illnesses, and decreasing childhood mortality rates. In 2016, the vaccination coverage for all but one vaccine was the best that it had been in five years. This achievement required the involvement of the public and private health sectors in giving, recording and reporting vaccine administration; and parents, guardians and teachers being vigilant to ensure that our children are appropriately vaccinated. Continued vigilance is required, as many countries still have these diseases which may be imported and spread if less than 95% of the population is immunized.

RESUMEN

The Ministry of Health (MOH), in seeking to promote healthy lifestyles to the Jamaican population, targets special settings as a means to achieving this goal. One of these special settings is the school. The MOH has had an on-going working relationship with the Ministry of Education (MOE) where targeted health interventions have been conducted in schools across the island. However, there has never been a sustained collaborative approach which is comprehensive in nature. It is for this reason that the MOH and the MOE have begun working together to implement a plan through which all schools will strive to be established as Health Promoting Schools
