What is health learning?
Health Learning, organized by the Ministry of Health and the General Directorate of Schools, aims to promote healthy habits, detect and treat diseases, and promote the all-round development of children with the family.
Thus, it allows bringing the health system closer to the community, seeking to promote the school and health center as institutional and social spaces. Within this framework, health professionals come to the school with various activities, concluding in some cases with diagnosis and referral to the geographically indicated health center with the school, with scheduled shifts by the local health team.
