New curriculum for School Health Ambassador Initiative under Ayushman Bharat

Policy Indications

Union Minister of Human Resource Development Ramesh Pokhriyal “Nishank”, Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare, Dr. Harsh Vardhan jointly released curriculum for School Health Ambassador Initiative under Ayushman Bharat in New Delhi on 12 February 2020.

Speaking on the occasion Pokhriyal said that the goal of ed­ucation is not only to increase the knowledge, but also to inculcate be­havior which promotes consciousness about good health. He said that the teachers are the best mentors for the children and now they will also act as “Health and Wellness Ambassadors” and will disseminate various key information by organising culturally sensitive activity-based sessions for one hour per week for 24 weeks in a year to promote joyful learning. The first phase of implementation will be in all the public upper primary, secondary and senior secondary schools of aspirational districts. Subsequently, remaining districts will be taken up in the second year. The Minister hoped that this initiative will help students to show the good academic performance of the students as well keep them healthy and enhance skills/counter issues which they may come across throughout their life.
