During the Third International Conference on Small Islands Developing States in Apia, Samoa, WHO Regional Director Dr Shin Young-soo called on the international community to reduce trade in unhealthy products—food and drink high in salt, sugar and fats. Dr Shin said the vision of healthy islands—a place where people can grow, live and learn in health and dignity— can only be achieved unless the NCD crisis is turned back.
