The AIA Healthiest Schools programme is aligned with AIA’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy and will encourage healthy living habits among students aged five to 16 (primary schools only in Hong Kong) by promoting healthy eating, active lifestyles, mental wellbeing, as well as health and sustainability in schools.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), children today face a host of new threats linked to unhealthy lifestyles and diets, climate change, pollution, injury, violence and inequality. WHO research shows that investing in children’s health, education and wellbeing brings substantial returns for societies.
In February 2022, AIA set an ambition to engage a billion people to live Healthier, Longer, Better Lives by 2030 through the AIA One Billion initiative. The AIA Healthiest Schools Programme will contribute to this goal as it engages, inspires and educates communities to lead healthier lifestyles.
The AIA Healthiest Schools Programme launched in Vietnam, Thailand, Hong Kong (primary schools only) and Australia in 2022/2023 with the aim to expand its reach across AIA’s other markets. The programme will be available in primary and secondary schools during the 2023/2024 academic year in Malaysia and Indonesia.Register for free
