dc.description.abstractAnguilla is a small, picturesque island in the Eastern Caribbean, the most northerly of the Leeward Islands. Its capital is The Valley. Although it is a British Overseas Territory, the island is home to approximately fifteen thousand people, each with its own unique culture and way of living. Anguilla has become a high-end tourist destination because of its breathtaking beaches and scenery, Anguilla has become a high-end tourist destination. In fact, tourism and tourism-related construction have become the main contributors to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Thus, Anguilla enjoys relatively high levels of health and well-being. Demonstrating this is the island’s increasing life expectancy and decreasing death rate. However, a rise in chronic, non-communicable diseases is a cause for concern; this increase is primarily due to drastic lifestyle changes. Vulnerable groups identified by the government include children, the elderly, the disabled, adolescent boys (particularly those who do not complete secondary school) and young single mothers.pt_BR
