School health programs are generally initiated in those areas where the school sanitary conditions are very poor. The kids are usually not aware of keeping themselves neat and clean, having healthy eating habits and interacting physically and socially with their classmates. Many of the young school going children get involved in sexual activities and get themselves thrown into the pit of major risks of HIV and STDs. The school health programs are there to guide the children about the ill effects of these diseases and the preventive measures that can be taken so that kids do not get these diseases transmitted in them. There are some behavior problems in adolescents, the school children aging between 10-16. They tend to get irritated and disturbed by very small things. Special counseling and therapies need to be provided to kids who have anti-social disorders.
