Health check-ups in school are important as they help:
|To assess normal development of the child
|To keep track of immunization schedule
|Early detection of disease / abnormalities, which when treated in time, allows the child to lead a normal life
|This preventive check-up data becomes the baseline for future reference
Furthermore, the recent mortality of a child due to an asthmatic attack in a school at Delhi has been an eye-opener for all of us – it depicts our deficiency in recognizing and managing basic health problems of school children. It also emphasizes the need to develop a concrete and comprehensive ‘School Health Check-up’ program.
To that effect, we need a tool that helps to systematically store every child’s comprehensive health information, inclusive of immunization records, growth charts, pathology, radiology and other reports in one place. Such a tool is ideal for all – children, parents as well as the school administration.
