It is common sense to any parent or educator that the health and educational development of children are inextricably linked. Children learn best when they are physically and emotionally healthy. Investments in school health programs are also great value for money.

For parents, school based health programs offer basic health checks and care which they otherwise may not be able to access or afford.
