This guide from CRS/Ghana addresses school health and, in particular, the ways that children can be mobilized as leaders in the effort to create more healthful school environments and communities. A child’s health status is a major determinant in whether or not s/he will succeed in school. Reducing environmental threats to health and promoting healthy behaviors can positively impact attendance and achievement at a school. The guide also describes the need for effective partnerships among schools, community groups, and ministries and other government service providers. These are important to leveraging the enthusiasm of the students for school health and creating a foundation for long term sustainability. [authors abstract]
