HIGHER HEALTH facilitates the inclusion of relevant health and social content, including mental health, into selected course work – or the so-called “1st Curriculum”. 

At TVET colleges, the life orientation curriculum takes priority, while compatible courses at universities have been identified and academics design health-related content. Where necessary, training is offered to lecturers to help them with this content. 

The 1st Curriculum deepens the understanding of students in relation to matters raised during First Things First and other health promotion activities.
