Jamaica Moves in Kingston and St.Andrew

Apr 13, 2018  |  Kingston

The Kingston and St. Andrew's leg of Jamaica Moves took place at Emancipation Park, New Kingston on Friday, April 13, 2018.  The Ministry of Health  'Jamaica Moves' (#Jamoves) campaign was launched one year ago  (April 2017)  at the same venue. The aim of the campaign is to promote an active lifestyle and healthy eating habits among Jamaicans, in order to reduce non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, heart conditions, cancers, and chronic kidney disease and, in turn create healthier and happier Jamaicans. Among the activities for the day include free health checks such as  pap smear test, dental checkups, physiotherapy consultations, outdoor workouts as well as fitness testing, dancing and hula hoop competitions.
