Synopsis: 
To eliminate the disproportionate number of African American seniors suffering health conditions and to encourage healthy behaviours, churches within the African American community have initiated health promotion programmes and services. This type of health intervention could serve to lessen the risk of disease, while improving the health and well-being of Jamaica’s ageing population.
