SHE Factsheet 1- State of the art: health promoting schools in Europe
The Schools for Health in Europe Network, led by CBO, has published its first factsheet of a series.
The factsheet provides a brief description of the current state of health promoting schools (HPS) in the European region. Data have been collected on where we are with health promoting school development and implementation in the 43 SHE member countries in the European region.
- At least 34, 000 schools were identified as health promoting schools in the European region in the 2012-2013 school year.
- In some of the participating countries, 100% of the primary and secondary schools are health promoting and in others the range is between 2 and 10%.
- The SHE National Coordinators have expressed their commitment to the further development, expansion and/or improvement of their national HPS programmes over the coming five years.
The results presented in the factsheet serve as a benchmark for future HPS development and implementation in the European region. With the continued and expended support of the HPS stakeholders, health promoting schools can lead to the positives health, social and academic outcomes on a large scale.
