Under the Public Private Partnership Initiative, four schools in UC Matta were selected to provide healthcare services to more than 500 students, ages 5 to 13, from low-income families. Medical doctors provided health services, while school teachers were trained for First Aid and monthly hygiene evaluations. Health education sessions, health clubs, and health education fairs were conducted in each school to promote healthy lifestyles. Handouts, audio/visual testimonials, and Project Activity Leaflet were disseminated during sessions to deliver prevention, early detection, and correction of health problems among students and reduce treatment costs.
