This project is an extension of the organization’s commitment to providing healthcare services, raising awareness about vaccinations, and health education in various public health domains, especially for students in schools.

These services will be provided in densely populated areas lacking basic healthcare services, contributing to achieving the recommendations of the health sector.
The project targets 102 primary schools and kindergartens, with the first step in the action plan being to support the vaccination campaign against measles and German measles. In addition, awareness sessions will be conducted for parents in schools regarding the importance of vaccinations, and students will participate in informative sessions and watch educational plays emphasizing the significance of vaccinations, the number of doses required, and the targeted age group.
Furthermore, brochures and posters will be distributed in schools and kindergartens, and teachers will be guided on the importance of vaccinations and how to prevent measles.
The School Health Program is a comprehensive initiative aimed at enhancing the health of the school community, the school environment, and contributing to improving the academic achievement of students by implementing a comprehensive school health program.
