HEALTHCARE

Children of Armenia Charitable Foundation (COAF) aims at maintaining and improving health conditions of children and adults living in rural areas, as well as preventing illnesses. Rural population often has no access to high-quality medical services since specialized medical institutions are mainly centralized in urban communities. COAF applies the principle of holistic approach, conducting various health-related programs, emphasizing and promoting the idea of healthy lifestyle, and providing access to high-quality primary healthcare.

PROMOTING HEALTHY
LIFESTYLE IN SCHOOLS

Forming healthy behavior from early age significantly decreases the morbidity rate and improves life quality. That is why COAF has been developing and conducting Healthy School program that includes not only health education training courses and seminars but also a healthy lifestyle club, health promotion events in schools, healthy school environment grants, etc.

Health education seminars and healthy lifestyle clubs are organized in schools to discuss healthy nutrition, general and oral hygiene, teen health, first aid, puberty and reproductive health, bad habits, and more. Healthy lifestyle seminars are designed for all schoolchildren, whereas more interested students can join healthy lifestyle clubs.

Seventeen schools in Armenia have joined Schools for Health in Europe Network. Sixteen of them are from COAF beneficiary communities. It helps our beneficiary schools to apply the best practices of European countries to promote healthy lifestyle in schools. The ideology of Schools for Health in Europe program totally fits into COAF health interventions in schools and communities. In the framework of the program, teachers, students and parents join their efforts to create healthier environments in schools. To support that strategy, COAF provides schools with grants.

Healthy lifestyle clubs in rural schools are actively involved in organizing health-promoting events. In the framework of grant programs, schools often initiate fascinating and unique projects, such as health-promoting puppet shows, sanitary facilities renovation, hiking tours, access to safe drinking water in schools, building sportsgrounds, “fruit and vegetable promotion days”, etc.
