Description:

Child health and education are strongly related; healthy children tend to perform better in school, providing a foundation for improved health in later life. In response to the limited success of traditional health education approaches, the Health Promoting Schools (HPS) framework was developed in the late 1980s by the World Health Organization (WHO). The WHO Health Promoting Schools (HPS) framework is a potential mechanism to promote student health and well‐being by considering individual, school, and community contexts in tandem.
