Mauritius, St Helena Seek NCDs Prevention Method Through Research

With noncommunicable diseases burdening many countries across the globe, governments continue to seek solutions and develop plans of action to address the diseases. A delegation from St Helena, a small British Island went on a study tour to learn from Mauritius' experiences in the prevention and control of NCDs in the country. 80% of all deaths in Mauritius are due to NCDs and the prevalence of diabetes is similar to that of St Helena's.
