Welcome to this research guide for Foundations for Health. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CRA paper.

Foundations for Health is a study based on the principles of health and hygiene. With the theme of illness prevention, it examines nutritional needs, immunizations, environmental hygiene, and other methods of disease control. The course focuses on practical methods for protecting health, such as domestic safety, proper care during pregnancy and childbirth, and water purification. It also stresses and teaches how to recognize the symptoms of many common ailments, and how to treat these problems to prevent further sicknesses or complications. The course concludes with instructions on basic first aid for emergency situations.
