Health

Health is crucial for sustainable human development, both as an undeniable human right and an essential contributor to the economic growth of society. Health is also a good summative measure of the progress of nations in achieving sustainable development. It contributes to national development through productive employment, reduced expenditure on illness care and greater social cohesion. By promoting good health at all ages, the benefits of development extend across generations. Investments in primary health care can promote health across all social groups and reduce health inequities within and between countries. Improving performance of health systems by enhancing financial and human resources, appropriate use of technology, community empowerment and good governance will advance this agenda.

By prioritizing sustainable development, societies commit to progress across four dimensions: economic development including the eradication of extreme poverty, social inclusion, environmental sustainability, and good governance. Each of these dimensions contributes to the others, and progress across all four is required for individual and societal wellbeing. Health is inherently important as a human right, but is also critical to achieving these four pillars. National aspirations for economic growth cannot be achieved without a healthy and productive population.

Not only do schools have the capacity to reach a large number of young people, but school students are particularly receptive to learning new information. Therefore, our Health Education Program provides young people with the knowledge, skills and basic information tools that will increase their knowledge and skills in leading a safe behaviors and helping them take responsibility for their own health.
