Using the structures and systems already in place, a school is an efficient setting for the promotion of oral and general health. Promotion of health can trigger the installation of vital facilities such as safe water and sanitation. The key components of a Health Promoting Schools (HPS) are healthy school environment, school health education, school health services, nutrition and food services, physical exercise and leisure activities, mental health and well-being, health promotion for staff and community relationships and collaboration. Each area offers many opportunities for addressing health issues either as a specific project or as part general health promotion strategies.
