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.

In Egypt, a two-stage cluster sample design was used to create a representative sample of students ages 11-16. The school response rate was 100%, while the student response rate was 87%, with a total of 5,249 students participating in the survey.
