Around 1.2 million school students received 16 hours of health training, including self-care, healthy nutrition and lifestyle practices, dealing with stress, and anger management last year (ended March 20). “The Health Ministry will continue with health promotion programs this year also,” said Shahram Rafieefar, director general of Education and Health Promotion Office at the Health Ministry. “Also 250,000 university students received training on important health aspects last year, and this year 400,000 more students will be covered,” IRNA quoted him as saying. There are nearly 14 million school students in the country, who on average, belong to a 3-4 member household. If their awareness can be raised, they in turn can educate their family members on important health issues.
