Education for health is a fundamental right of every child. Health is inextricably linked to educational achievement, quality of life, and economic productivity. By acquiring health-related knowledge, values, skills, and practices, children can be empowered to pursue a healthy life and to work as agents of change for the health of their communities. In order to achieve these goals, this report, an outcome of the WHO/UNESCO/UNICEF Consultation on strategies for implementing comprehensive school health education/Promotion programme, provides general principles and strategies to guide action.
