Paris Declaration focus on school health promotion

In Paris on 7-8 December 2016 a WHO high level conference was held on ‘Partnerships for the health and well-being of our young and future generations’. The aim of the conference was to strengthen intersectoral cooperation between the health, education and social sectors in the WHO European Region. This helps to create better, more equal health and social outcomes for children and adolescents and their families. One of the outcomes was that every school in the European region should be a setting that promotes health and wellbeing. Also the SHE network should be strengthed and expanded.
