Class Action: Improving School Performance in the Developing World through Better Health and Nutrition. Directions in Development.
Del Rosso, Joy Miller; Marek, Tonia
This book summarizes how better nutrition and health for youths in developing nations will enhance: (1) school enrollment, attendance, and performance; (2) economic productivity; and (3) the health of future generations. By discussing the many low-cost and highly efficient actions that can improve school-age children's health and nutrition, this book serves as a tool for task managers to use in policy dialogue with governments, in raising consciousness and promoting interest, and in carrying out specific tasks. Sections of the book include: (1) "School-Age Children at Risk"; (2) "Costly Conditions, Low-Cost Remedies"; (3) "Higher Productivity and Better Community Health"; (4) "Taking Action"; and (5) "The Lessons Learned". Appendices include "Information Required for a Situation Analysis of the Nutrition and Health of School-Age Children" and "World Bank Projects with Services Related to the Nutrition and Health of School-Age Children, by Country." Charts and illustrations accompany the text. (Contains 53 references.) (EH)
