Title: Health and Education – Promoting Health Through Schools
Author: Rampersad, Joycelyn
Abstract: This article identifies some of the problems and challenges that impact the health of youth in Trinidad and Tobago, and suggests that we can begin to address the problems through health promotion and education, which should begin in schools, since the school is the primary agent of socialization and can reach large numbers of children and, through them, their families and communities. In this respect, the article discusses the work of the CARICOM Health and Family Life Education (HFLE) Project, and notes that Trinidad and Tobago has lagged behind other CARICOM countries with respect to the full implementation of HFLE as a core area of the school curriculum. The need for Trinidad and Tobago to revisit the role of HFLE in the school curriculum is emphasized
