Health Behaviour in School-aged Children

The HBSC study (Health Behaviour in School-aged Children) is an international collaborative research study of children’s way of life. The study is based on the opinion of the WHO, which states that behaviour and lifestyle in adulthood are the results of the child’s development in childhood and adolescence. Monitoring of the behavioural components affecting health in young people is important from the perspective of public health. According to the WHO (2002), young people with specific risk factors should be a target group for preventive efforts in the field of health promotion. The Czech Republic, along with 24 other mostly European countries, participated in the study for the first time in 1995 and the research is repeated at four-year intervals. The research group consists of a representative sample of 11-, 13-, and 15-year-old schoolchildren.

Members of the Institute of Social Health are members of the HBSC national teams in the Czech and Slovak Republics. OUSHI guarantees the qualitative supplement of the quantitative study.
