BENEFITS OF A SCHOOL HEALTH PROGRAMME

BENEFITS OF A SCHOOL HEALTH PROGRAMME

ACCESS

School health programmes operate where most learners are, and can provide on-site services to help treat existing health conditions so that they do not impact school attendance. They overcome barriers such as transportation, inconvenient locations or appointment systems.

ATTENDANCE

School health programmes have been demonstrated to increase school attendance and thus improving students’ academic performance by reducing attendance gaps.

AFFORDABLE

School health programmes are free at the point of use. Services also appear to have cost benefits in terms of adolescent health and society as a whole by reducing health disparities and attendance at secondary care facilities.

COHERENT COMMUNITIES

They are highly valued by learners, parents and communities and can provide links between schools and communities.

REACH

School health programmes have the potential to reach the underserved, low-income, and high-risk populations with basic health care.

PROVIDE HEALTH SERVICES IN SCHOOLS

School health programmes are effective especially for sexual and reproductive health, improvements in obesity and physical activity, self-care among youth with chronic health.
