Director of Primary Health Care and the Government representative attached to the program, Dr. Francis Martin, explained the format of the program.
“The program will be broken down into 90 minutes. Forty-five minutes being given to the football skills session and another 45 minutes to a health issue. He also applauded Grenada for being the first Caribbean country to kick off in the new school term.
“This initiative will look at improving the health of our children through football and has actually come at the right time as the Ministry of Health is in the process of reviewing its School Health Program as part of its National Primary Healthcare Program.”
His remarks were further echoed by Minister of State, in the Ministry of Education & Human Resource Development, Honourable Simon Stiell, who highlighted on the benefits of such a program to Grenada.
