National Health Education Week (#NHEW) was created by the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE). This week has been celebrated for more than twenty three years and is always held during the third week of October. The purpose behind it is to raise awareness on a national level regarding major public health issues and promoting a better understanding of the role of health education. It has been shown that public health education helps individual to acquire functional health knowledge, and strengthen attitudes, beliefs, and practice skills needed to adopt and maintain healthy behaviors throughout their lives. SOPHE provide daily themes to assist with breaking the information of the week into manageable sessions.
