About our Advocacy Programmes

The Heart & Stroke Foundation of Barbados is currently engaged in a number of advocacy and public sensitization activities, designed to drive change in the minds and hearts of our fellow Barbadians.

Prevent Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is linked to complications in childhood such as diabetes and hypertension and it tracks into adulthood increasing the risk of developing NCDs.

#STOPyuhTOOsweet

The Heart & Stroke Foundation of Barbados (HSFB) has launched a campaign focused on the ban of the promotion and sale of sugary and unhealthy foods in schools, with a tagline for the campaign that highlights the importance of the issue, speaking to various age groups and inspiring action or debate.

#stopsugarcoatingthetruth

How many sugary drinks do you consume each day, especially kids at school? It is time to create a healthier school environment.  We are here to educate and inspire for better change.
