- Youth should gain exposure to the skills of population thinking through public health education. However, it has yet to become an essential component of high school curricula.
- High school public health education will focus on critical thinking, science and digital literacy, youth empowerment, and community-based participatory action research in each community
- Youth will learn the importance on how to acquire, analyze, evaluate, interpret, and apply information to understand societal problems in a real-world context. It also helps to cultivate a sense of social responsibility to address community health needs.
- This model can create triple benefits of being an educational institution, a well-being hub connecting young people to services, and as an enabler for health-related engagement.
