OPLAN KALUSUGAN SA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION (OK sa DepEd)

I. BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a country’s investments for an effective school health program is considered to be a cost-effective investment as it simultaneously improves health and education. Ill and malnourished children miss so much school time, get delayed coming back or refuse to return to avoid the stigma of grade level repeaters. Unintended pregnancies cause girls to drop-out of school, lessening their chances of a better future. And the problem on illegal drugs pose as a bigger threat to the security and welfare of the youth and students.

Health-promoting practices can significantly reduce many of the current and future causes of death, diseases and disability in the Department of Education (DepEd). These practices include detecting highly vulnerable individuals in the Department, preventing unhealthy behaviors, and identifying and referring sick and malnourished children to receive health care while the children are still in school. Early detection is critical and school administrators, staff, and teachers are in a position to identify nutrition and hygienic issues, substance abuse, and risky sexual behavior.

In response, the Bureau of Learner Support Services (BLSS)- School Health Division (SHD) implements several health and nutrition programs to maintain and improve the health of schoolchildren and personnel through the prevention and control of diseases, and the promotion of health-related knowledge, attitudes, skills, and practices. Aligning these programs with its targets will pave the way for a more systematic and holistic approach in the implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of its various undertakings.

Convergence of DepEd’s Health and Nutrition Programs

DepEd launches the Oplan Kalusugan sa Department of Education (OK sa DepEd) which is a convergence of DepEd’s health programs, plans, policies, and activities for their effective and efficient implementation at the school level, in partnership with various stakeholders. OK sa DepEd shall focus on DepEd’s major school health and nutrition programs specifically the School-Based Feeding Program (SBFP), National Drug Education Program (NDEP), Adolescent Reproductive Health Education (ARH), Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) in Schools (WinS), and Medical, Dental, and Nursing Services. Other health and nutrition programs will continue to be implemented in support of these five flagship programs.

Currently, school health and nutrition programs are separately implemented by the schools on the basis of separate issuances, orders, and memoranda. While schools will continue to follow existing policies and guidelines for each program, schools, through OK sa Deped, will plan, organize, implement, monitor, and evaluate these programs not as separate programs, but as year-round school activities that complement and reinforce each other toward the overall aim of ensuring the health and well-being of learners and personnel. Given this, OK sa DepEd shall not be treated as a new or additional program, but as an approach to delivering school health and nutrition programs as harmonized activities at the school level.

Ultimately, OK sa DepEd shall redound towards improving school performance or learning indicators of the learners, such as improved attendance and class participation, improved completion and achievement levels, and reduced drop-out.

Furthermore, this convergence of DepEd’s health and nutrition programs shall also strengthen DepEd’s efforts to contribute to the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals in the Philippines, specifically Goal # 1 – End poverty in all its forms everywhere, Goal # 2 – End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture, Goal # 3 – Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages, Goal # 4 – Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all, Goal # 5 – Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls, and Goal # 6 – Ensure access to water and sanitation for all.

Given these, DepEd hereby issues this policy and guidelines to provide general and specific guidance on the planning and implementation of OK sa DepEd.
