School Health and Development in Low Resource Countries: The Ongoing FRESH Partners Dialogue and Summaries Context matters

The resources, culture, systems and capacities within countries and regions will determine the nature, priorities and, ultimately, the sustainability of school-based and school-linked programs to promote education, health and development. Understanding these factors and developing programs, policies and multi-component approaches within contexts such as conflict/disaster-affected regions, small island developing states and indigenous communities has become an important matter, even a starting point, for many UN agencies, donor organizations, researchers and global organizations.
