GIZ JA 2013-002: The Fit for School health outcome study – a longitudinal survey to assess health impacts of an integrated school health programme in the Philippines

Child health in many low- and middle-income countries lags behind international goals and affects children’s education, well-being, and general development. Large-scale school health programmes can be effective in reducing preventable diseases through cost-effective interventions. This paper outlines the baseline and 1-year results of a longitudinal health study assessing the impact of the Fit for School Programme in the Philippines.
