Improved Learning through better Health, Nutrition and Education for the School-Age Child.
Bangkok, Thailand, 2 - 10 December, 2013
Hosted by Mahidol University in Bangkok, Thailand, the course focused on the crucial topic of malnutrition; looking at the double burden of stunting and wasting, and under-nutrition among children as well as the growing issue of child obesity in Asia. Expert lectures and workshops on these topics were given by Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health, PCD and other SHN practitioners.
The course was then followed by the first Asian School Health Symposium on December 11, which brought together school health professionals and policy makers to issue an international declaration which highlights key issues for the future of school health in the region.
