Ensuring that children are healthy and able to learn is an essential part of an effective education system. As many studies show, education and health are inseparable. A child’s nutritional status affects cognitive performance and test scores; illness from parasitic infection results in absence from school, leading to school failure and dropping out (Vince Whitman et al., 2001). Structures and conditions of the learning environment are as important to address as individual factors. Water and sanitation conditions at school can affect girls’ attendance. Children cannot attend school and concentrate if they are emotionally upset or in fear of violence. On the other hand, children who complete more years of schooling tend to enjoy better health and have access to more opportunities in life. Equipping young people with knowledge, attitudes, and skills through education is analogous to providing a vaccination against health threats. Educating for health is an important component of any education and public health programme. It protects young people against threats both behavioural and environmental, and complements and supports policy, services, and environmental change
