- Chronic Disease Risk Factor Survey 2012
There has been a gradual shift in disease patterns over the years from communicable to non-communicable diseases. Diseases such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke and cancers present a major challenge to our health care system. In order to effectively address this growing problem, we need to have some baseline data that will assist us in the development of programmes, services and policies to ensure that the appropriate interventions are made. This is the first adult population based risk factor survey conducted in the Cayman Islands. The results of the survey identified a large number of the population with three or more risk factors and therefore it is clear that a long term action plan is needed in order to address this growing epidemic of chronic diseases. Let us hope that the findings of the report will urge us to do more and develop urgent action plans to improve the health and quality of life for all our residents.
