"Healthy Schools BC, a key initiative of the Healthy Families BC (HFBC) strategy, builds the capacity of the health and education sectors to effectively implement healthy schools  initiatives using a Comprehensive School Healthapproach. Strengthened health-education partnerships, tools for healthy school assessment and planning, and the coordination of existing school-based healthy living programs and resources combine to support improvements in students' health and learning."
