childhood obesityThe Ministry of Health is borrowing 50 million U-S dollars to treat with childhood obesity and noncommunicable diseases in this country.

The issue of obesity was raised by a joint select committee of parliament this morning.

Chairman of the committee, Marlene Mcdonald said there are simply too much fast food options.

In response, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Health Richard Madray said one of the initiatives to treat with the problem is a loan to help implement projects.

The ministry says another survey of childhood obesity will soon be conducted.
