2007 Bulgaria: Evaluation of the pilot implementation of the model for School Health Education Policy on HIV/AIDS

Executive summary


The start of developing and piloting a model for school health educational policy to prevent contraction of HIV/AIDS was initiated by UNICEF and Ministry of Education in the period 2004-2005. 

Purpose/ Objective:

The initial aim was to outline a framework for a school policy on HIV prevention. But the theoretical description of the model comprises a comprehensive system for designing and implementing of a school policy for health promotion. The elements and steps of development and implementation of such a policy could be easily adapted and applied in other sectors of school policies. The work on the model’s pilot implementation in 15 schools in 3 municipalities round the country (Byala Slatina, Loznitsa and Nessebar) allows to try out the elements through practical application of the theoretically developed principles and approaches and to draw conclusions and make improvements in the model.

The main aspects and elements of the model for a health promotion school policy include: developing a vision for the policy; defining a school mission, mandate and goals; developing an organizational and community culture (rules and regulations, values and traditions) for health promotion; developing partnerships and working for establishing a physical and social environment favourable for promotion of health among students.
