Health Education in 20 Primary Schools in Cameroon



This project will provide health education to rural communities in Cameroon, in order to reduce Malaria and HIV/AIDs prevalence among children. In order to encourage behavioral change, all levels of the community will be targeted. New health clubs will be created in 20 primary schools to enhance learning efforts and bolster public support. Basic knowledge materials and prevention practices will be taught through seminars and training sessions involving teachers and parents.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Rural primary school pupils in this region do not get access to practical information or skills in health related issues which could help them make informed decisions to protect themselves against fatal diseases like HIV/AIDS and Malaria. Due to deeply rooted customs and traditions in rural communities of the North West Region of Cameroon, sex education for children is limited and schools are reluctant to provide suitable sex education.

How will this project solve this problem?

Knowledge for Children recognizes the lack of educational materials for empowering these communities to make informed decisions about basic health issues. The 20 health clubs to be set up in primary schools will help children stay healthy and feel in control over their health and hygienic choices, while providing essential HIV/AIDS and Malaria prevention workshops for teachers and parents. These clubs thus involve the entire community, creating a sustainable web of support and knowledge.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our priority is to establish sustainable development and through our projects, build the capacity necessary within communities to foster self reliance. Our programs always involve the beneficiaries utilizing a participatory approach. This project will go a long way in promoting healthy behavioral practices; essential to reducing the prevalence of HIV/AIDS and Malaria among primary school-aged children.
