The Healthy Schools program is a national accreditation program implemented in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education since 2008, with an aim to create health-promoting environments within schools, which reflect positively on students’ physical and social growing, as well as their academic performance. The program is carried through national health standards on which participating schools are trained and supervised to implement successfully. The program focuses on public and preventive health education, such as personal hygiene, oral hygiene, physical activity, healthy diets, and drugs & smoking prevention.

By the end of the academic year, schools will be accredited as Bronze, Silver, and Gold Healthy schools. Generations Protected (Tahseen) is an initiative launched in 2016 under the healthy schools program, designed to protect youth from risky behaviors of addiction on drugs and tobacco, through raising their awareness about the harms of such risky behaviors. Tahseen builds the capacity of the younger generation in social and life skills, equipping them with the right skill set to be more resilient, self-confident, enhance their self-esteem and be able to handle peer pressure.

The initiative targets students in different grades through programs that are age sensitive, where a number of extracurricular activities are designed for 4th-6th graders; a series of interactive, skill based workshops target 7th-9th graders, implemented through the Ministry of Education; and a peer to peer education program will run for those aged 15 years and above through relevant NGOs and youth centers.
