          Abstract

          This study aims to see if text books in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Swat District contain an adequate amount of literature related to health education. The research methodology used to reach any conclusion(s) regarding health education/promotion contents in government school textbooks was qualitative in nature considering textual analysis of vital subjects taught in 9th and 10th grades in the District. Analysis confirms that school syllabus/books lack health education literature, giving a solemn conclusion that government schools students might remain unable to live a healthy life as adolescents and adults. The study recommends that government schools textbooks should be revised for inclusion of contents related to preventive healthcare measures to enable students to spend a healthy life now as well as during their later life. CONCLUSION: The situation of immigrants calls for a global action plan. Access to health is a global issue. Promoting access to health for all requires Global Policies. There is a need for conceptual framework while recognizing public health risks.
