Executive Summary:

On 13th May 2010, the United Nations, led by Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member states, voted unanimously for UN Resolution 64/265 to hold a United Nations Summit on Non-Communicable Diseases (UNS) in September 2011. The Summit is a once in a generation opportunity to put non-communicable diseases (NCDs) on the global agenda. It has the potential to secure commitment from Heads of Government for a coordinated global response to NCDs, substantially increase resources for NCDs and save millions from premature death and debilitating health complications.
