Pacific health ministers, who met last week in the Cook Islands, want to see a greater effort by the region to tackle non-communicable diseases.

The region's health ministers meet once every two years and this year the focus was a shared vision of Healthy Islands and working to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.

A critical matter under discussion was the worsening level of childhood obesity.

Don Wiseman asked the host minister, the Cook Islands' Nandi Glassie, what they saw as the solution to childhood obesity.
