THE health of students is as much a factor in the outcome of studies as is access to tertiary education and uninterrupted studying.

HEAIDS and the higher education and training institutions also assist in addressing other wellness issues that increase risk factors such as alcohol and drug abuse and gender-based violence.

“As we start this new year, and prepare to tackle our academic, intellectual and professional goals and priorities, we urge students and youth to make 2017 a healthy year.
The rewards will be both immediate and long-term as it allows for greater confidence to work hard and achieve educational and career aspirations,” said Dr Ahluwalia.
