Healthy Living

We believe that the people of the Americas deserve a future where their prospects and quality of life will not be limited by preventable chronic health problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

Increased life expectancy is one of the major gains achieved by public health; however, longer life does not necessary coincide with higher quality of life. Disabling conditions and decreased health status plague many people as they grow older.

Healthy aging and prevention of childhood obesity are two among other ways to prevent chronic disease.

We agree with PAHO Champion of Health and popular television host, Don Francisco, and encourage you to: "Make a good invesment ..., eat more fruits & vegetables, and walk at least 30 minutes each day."
