The Health Promoting Schools Framework for Action provides an evidence framework to assist the growth and development of the concept of health promoting schools in the Region. Its purpose is to provide guidance on key principles of health promoting schools and outlines some simple tools that can help stakeholders assess, review and prioritize practical actions that can lead to effective strategies for establishing health promoting schools. The monitoring tool can be used by key stakeholders as an entry point for mobilizing support for the programme, establishing projects and prioritizing actions. The Framework is intended for use by a wide range of groups such as government ministries, particularly those for health and education, schools (school staff, teachers, students and parents), local governments, nongovernmental organizations and all those committed to improving the health and well-being of young people.
