  Fostering integrated and coordinated programs in which children themselves play a full and active part.

ABSTRACT: Health education is one of the important components of the health promotion. There can be no promotion without health education. Health education provides factual knowledge about diseases and knowledge about its prevention. Schools offer a convenient way of reaching a large number of children and young people; therefore health education in schools is very good strategy for improving health. In addition schools are within communities and children can spread health information that they learn in their schools to their own communities through the Child-to-Child Approach.
