Healthy children are the foundation for a healthier Nation and Nation’s future, it depends on the status of the children. Leaders around the world have acknowledged that, schools are an important setting where children can develop their behavior skills for physical, emotional and social well-being. Other than the family, no social institution has greater influence on the lives of children than schools. Every day, lakhs of children are in the state of going to school and spend a considerable amount of time, interacting with their peers and teachers gaining knowledge, building attitudes and skills and developing behaviors. Behavioral patterns that develop during childhood and adolescence are retained for life. Therefore, School plays a crucial role in building healthier Nations around the world.

It is vital for the learners, teachers, health workers, parents and community members, which are jointly engaged to bring an improvement in the overall situation of health and wellbeing of the students through better health promotion, strengthened prevention, and appropriate curative measures, then many health barriers experienced by them can be greatly reduced.
The school environment is a natural entry point for reaching children and adolescents with health education, health promotion and health services. Schools represents the ideal ecosystem for students to imbibe from peers and learn from role models, such as teachers and head of the school.
