Summary 

The Global School-Based Health Survey was designed to provide accurate data on health behaviors and protective factors among students, including dietary behaviors, hygiene, physical activity, drug and alcohol use, and violence and unintentional injury. It is often used to help countries develop priorities, establish programs, and advocate for resources for school health programs, policies, and youth health.

The 2015 Seychelles survey included students in grades S1-S5 using a two-stage cluster sample design; 2,540 students used a self-administered questionnaire with an 82% response rate.
