FIGUEIREDO, Túlio Alberto Martins de; MACHADO, Vera Lúcia Taqueti  and  ABREU, Margaret Mirian Scherrer de. Health at school: a brief history. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2010, vol.15, n.2, pp.397-402. ISSN 1413-8123.

It involves the historical birth of school health in the world and Brazil. It shows a regional initiative of Health Promoting Schools - a discourse of multiple viewings and joint work among education, health and society -, as an alternative model of attention to school health, recommended by Pan American Health Organization, to the Caribbean and Latin American Countries. Finally, it takes into account that a detailed observation of the National Curriculum Parameters is an essential condition so that health professionals, who are sensitive to the school health education issue, can contribute to its inclusion in the fundamental education with a critical, interdisciplinary and transversal approach, presenting the guidelines of a new national health polices at public schools.
