PAHO is doing a study that will determine if Antigua & Barbuda introduces a so-called sugar tax.
That is according to the Health Minister Molywn Joseph who says the intention is to make it more difficult for residents to buy sugary foods and beverages which contribute to diabetes and other non-communicable diseases.

Joseph says non-communicable diseases were on the agenda when the World Health Assembly met recently.
He has been elected to chair one of the Assembly’s committees.
