Education for Health

Health Education is one of the current educational concerns.

Some channels of information and education are currently beyond the control of parents and teachers, and are marking the course of action regarding our children and students’ health education.

Aware of the need to deal more specifically and deeply with these problems, we have conceived this School Health Program as a dynamic process that globally accepts everyone and makes it easier for students to acquire basic knowledge, skills and attitudes to defend and promote individual and collective health.
