Survey on school health services in the European Region

In 2009 WHO/Europe conducted a questionnaire-based survey in 37 European countries on school health services. The aim was to gain evidence on:

  • these services’ contribution to pupils’ priority health and development needs;
  • the content of the services and how they mesh with health promotion and primary health care; and
  •  reforms of the health system and the services.
The purpose was not to elicit governments’ official position but to measure the understanding and assessment of the various professionals and policy-makers involved.
