International School Health Network
2030 UN Goals - HPSD Education
ISHN is helping to create an international discussion on Health, Personal, Social Development (HPSD) education and the education/development of teachers and others to deliver classroom instruction and other forms of extended educational opportunities. This includes the FRESH Working Group on Health Literacy, Life Skills & Social Inclusion, an International Research Network in cooperation with the World Education Research Association and helping to create a Global Network of Deans of Education (GNDE) to work on workforce development issues.
The Food & Agriculture Organization of the UN has contracted with ISHN to prepare a policy brief in the integration of school food & nutrition programs within education systems. The brief will suggest a systems-based strategy that is based on reciprocal benefits rather then the one way benefits (health only) often suggested in some interpretations of the WHO Health in All Policies approach.
