Healthy Basics

Developed by clinicians from The Children’s Health Fund’s National Children’s Health Project Network, Healthy B.A.S.I.C.S. provides simple, accurate and culturally relevant health education brochures, lesson plans, and parent’s guide suitable for children and families of all backgrounds.

Healthy B.A.S.I.C.S. materials are produced in accordance with low literacy writing and design conventions. Authors strive to incorporate ethnic and cultural diversity into all content and illustrations. Materials are field tested within Children’s Health Fund's National Network and are reviewed by a medical anthropologist for cross-cultural appropriateness.


All Healthy B.A.S.I.C.S. materials are available below in English (top row) and Spanish (bottom row).  All are downloadable in Adobe Acrobat PDF format, and reproduce well in black and white. Click here if you need Adobe Acrobat Reader.
