Education and Culture
 A. BackgroundThe Regional Fit for School Program is based on the principles of the
award-winning Fit for School Approach, which has been developed in the
Philippines with support of the German International Cooperation. The approach
focuses on intersectoral collaboration between health, education, water and
sanitation sector and makes use of the existing structures of the education
sector to institutionalize evidence based preventive measures like hand-washing with soap and tooth-brushing as part of daily routines in public
elementary schools. It also includes the improvement of water and sanitation
facilities, specifically group hand-washing stations and thus support schools to become health-promoting,
learning, and living environments. The Program has recently entered its
second phase, starting from December 2015 until November 2018. While the
activities during the 1st program phase (2011-2015) focused on the development
