We all want to be healthy and happy. It seems, however, that most people forget that good health is not a gift; rather, it is something that takes hard work each and every day. Many times, people only start to think about their personal health when they are ill. One of the most important training and education programs that can be offered in schools is health education. The Youth Red Cross supports education on preventive health measures and environment with the goal to teach students to take responsibility for their personal health. This can be achieved by providing information and building awareness.
The Youth Red Cross offers specific programs on these subjects:
- the GIVE Service Center for Health Education for teachers
- Personal Health and Hygiene Workbooks for primary schools
