Evaluation of School Health Programmes. Report on a Working Group. Bucharest, 2-5 August 1977.
World Health Organization, Copenhagen (Denmark). Regional Office for Europe.
A discussion of the health services in the schools of eight European countries is presented in this report. The care of the preschool child is also examined. The working group assigned to this task considered different methods of evaluation, including those measuring quantity and quality of services and, in addition, discussed statistical means and methods and defined certain specific school health problems. Examples of child health problems suitable for study and follow-up within the school health services are considered. The group was also asked to discuss the tasks of existing school health staff and to pay special attention to the roles of doctors, nurses, teachers, parents, and pupils in school health work, in different types of health systems, both now and in the future. The general public health situation and socioeconomic structure of the eight countries are taken into consideration, and the future role of health systems and maternal and child health services is discussed.
