School Health Education

9:57 am Health Care

In a meeting of the advisory working group for the National Programme for Prevention and Control of Cancer, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases and Stroke (NPCDCS), Dr Jagdish Prasad DGHS hinted that the government is thinking of suggesting the HRD ministry of making school health education on lifestyle a must.

If the proposal meets acceptance, all school children from 5th class onwards would have lifestyle as a special subject in their curricula.  Also, yoga will become compulsory in schools.
