|Issue Date: ||2004 |
|Abstract: ||Universal Primary Education (U.P.E) in Uganda was introduced in 1997 and has resulted in an increase in Primary school enrolment from 60% before the introduction of U.P.E to 90% in 2003. However, Primary school completion rates are still poor. Thirty percent of primary school drop out is due to sickness and 3% due to pregnancy (MOEs in 2003).
As an effort to address the Health needs of school going children in Rakai District, the District Health team organised an in-service training in school health for health teachers in day primary schools and distribution of first aid kits to schools. Despite the intervention, the status of school health services in Primary schools is not known.|
