GAVIDIA CATALAN, Valentín. The transversality and the heath promotion schools. Rev. Esp. Salud Publica [online]. 2001, vol.75, n.6, pp.505-516. ISSN 2173-9110.

The following article shows the evolution of the schools contribution to the Health Education of children and young people. Moving on from the traditional concept of health, today, Health Education has a general and global meaning, wich encompasses all of the physical, psicological and social aspects of health. These aspects define the characteristics of the «Healthy School». The need to broach the «transversal subject» offers schools the possibility of developing «transversality» in the Health Education. Finally, the concept of promoting health defines, together with the other subjects, that which we understand by «the heath promotion schools», which attempts to progress the full integration of schools in the society in which they are located.
