Schools and Ministries of Education have a powerful role to play in
promoting and safeguarding the health and safety of students and staff
Health – physical, emotional, social, mental and spiritual – has a significant influence on academic performance and quality of life. In turn, school success and completion have a positive impact on health status. Across the Caribbean, the education sector, often working in collaboration with the health sector and civil society, is taking bold steps to build its capacity to promote health and prevent disease through a broad range of school health policies and evidence-based programs.
EduCan is a network of people from Ministries of Education across the Caribbean. Network members are leading the way in developing policies and programs that promote and protect the health and safety of students and staff.
