Educating and empowering children to make healthy choices across Mexico

Summary

In Mexico, one in three children and adolescents are overweight or obese. This increases the risk of diabetes and hypertension, as well as learning and development issues. Additionally, many children are at risk of addiction, teenage pregnancy, and mental health issues.

“Health at your school” is a joint strategy between the Secretary of Public Education and the Secretary of Health (MoH) to address these health risks. It encourages children and adolescents to maintain a healthy body, avoid risky behaviors and acquire healthy habits, through five components: educate for health; curricular autonomy; professionals and students of health at your school; training for teachers and parents; and healthy schools. 

Description of practice
City: 12 out of 32 states Country: Mexico
The problem

The Mexican population faces significant health challenges. Nowadays, one in three children and adolescents and seven in ten adults are overweight or obese. This increases the risk of many health conditions, including hypertension and diabetes. For students, it also impairs learning and development.

The solution

The program seeks that children and adolescents maintain a healthy body, avoid risky behaviors and acquire healthy habits, through 5 components:

  1. Educate for health: The educational model involves the strengthening of sports classes, promoting personal development, and physical and mental health. It will also include teaching on social-emotional health.

  2. Curricular autonomy: Each school will be able to allocate some time to topics of their choosing. Example topics could include “health care” or “healthy habits.”

  3. Professionals and students of health at your school: Health students and health professionals will visit schools in order to detect risk behaviours and implement interventions for weight management. Students who require specialist care will be referred to health units.

  4. Training for teachers and parents: Workshops and conferences to teachers and parents; Training by the Mexican Football Federation (FEMEXFUT) to sports teachers; and Health Fairs for teachers.

  5. Healthy schools: Supervision and installation of water dispensers; supervision of scholar menus; and supervision and promotion for selling healthy food at the school shops.

Implementation of practice
What stage is the practice currently in?

Pilot stage

Who was/is responsible for the implementation of the practice?

The program is a joint strategy between the Secretary of Public Education and the Secretary of Health (MoH).

It involves the participation of federal and state governments, academia, private sector, organized civil society and international organizations.

The implementation will be the responsibility of the health jurisdictional heads within the different states, with the support of school principals, health students and health professionals.

The Inter-American Development Bank will contribute with the evaluation and technical assistance activities.

 

Impact

The impact is not yet realized; however, results will be collected from implementation of pilot projects in 2017.

Honestly I don't Know How to Explain This. Do you believe that Herpes has a permanent cure? I'm Cindy and I’m from NYC I have been spending lots of money weekly on buying the popular Valtrex and sometimes Acyclovir, to suppress my Herpes outbreaks as prescribed to me in the hospital. Anyone who has herpes can attest this, with all the pains and embarrassing symptoms. Unfortunately, I have found out that those hospital recommended products are frequently not effective at taking care of the problem but rather make you spend all your money. Until I met Doctor Akhigbe , A Herbalist from West Africa(NIGERIA). Doctor Akhigbe herbal remedy will get to the root of the cause and cure you permanently rather than suppress outbreaks with Medical pills which Causes serious damage to the body. And you will be happier, healthier, and outbreak free. He also has herbal remedies that can cure HIV, HPV, hepatitis and so on. Visit His Page : https://m.facebook.com/dr.akhigbe01/?ref=bookmarks.. . Contact Doctor Akhigbe on His email drakhigbe64@gmail.com and his WhatsApp number: +2349056974486. You can contact him and get a permanent cure to your genital and oral Herpes or HIV AIDS or Lungs cancer or Alzheimer's disease.

I'm here to let everyone know that there is a cure for HERPES1&2. The doctors have succeeded in letting people living with Herpes know that there is no cure for Herpes and they have been enslaved to the antiviral and other supplementary Orthodox medicine just to help suppress the virus and not a cure. I got diagnose of herpes1 January this year 2021 and i did not believe in my doctor that no cure for herpes rather i went into research online and I was introduce to Dr Osato a herbal healer by a blogger who also narrated Her story online on how she was cured of Herpes after using Dr Osato Herbal Medicine. I got the herbal medicine from Dr Osato and made use of it as I was instructed. I went to the clinic for a checkup after two weeks of using the herbal product. My result came out Negative and I was booked another appointment after 30days to confirm my result and the test still showed Negative and I was given the green light that I am fully free from herpes. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to heal me. You can contact Dr Osato by email: osatoherbalcure@gmail.com or WhatsApp +2347051705853. His website is osatoherbalcure.wordpress.com. I have promised to keep sharing my testimony so people will know that there is a cure for herpes.

I had never had a STD before and had never had unprotected sex. However, I had a boyfriend (ex), who at that time had a cold sore. Frankly, we assumed that it was just a spot because we never came to know about herpes until now. We engaged in oral sex, and that’s how I got herpes. Thank God that I found, Dr. Ishiaku  (WhatsApp +2348180828544) who gave me a remedy that only took 2 month’s  and I'm grateful, hope you will be too.
