Children’s health highlighted
From March 4 to 8, school children’s health will be highlighted by the Department of Education.
Government has pledged to put the health of school children first by rolling out the School Health Screening Programme.
The programme brings basic health screening to learners at schools, in areas that have been identified as priority health districts.
These include schools in areas least likely to have access to health care services.
The Department of Health, in partnership with the Department of Basic Education, will conduct basic health screening for Grade One and foundation phase learners.
The programme also offers a comprehensive and integrated package of services for other learners.
