UNESCO and WHO Urge Countries to Prioritize Health Promoting Schools

UNESCO and the World Health Organization have launched the Global Standards for Health-promoting Schools, which is a resource package for schools to improve the health and well-being of students. The resource package is based on a set of eight global standards and aims to ensure that schools promote life skills, socioemotional skills, and healthy lifestyles for everyone. Furthermore, UNESCO and WHO will work with governments to ensure the resource package is adapted to fit specific contexts. Overall, the new global standards will help countries integrate health promotion into all schools and boost the well-being of students worldwide. Learn more here and check out the publications here.
