For the goals of Education for All (EFA) to be achieved, children must be healthy enough not only to attend school but also to learn while there. Because school health and nutrition programs specifically benefit poor, sick, and hungry children, they can make a key contribution to achieving EFA's goals. However, children can benefit only if the programs reach them. Rethinking School Health: A Key Component of Education for All describes how schools have been used as a platform for delivering familiar, safe, andá simple health and nutrition interventions to hard-to-reach children in low-income countries. The book will be of particular interest to those working in the fields of education, health and nutrition, and early childhood development.
