Abstract: 

A SCHOOL-BASED SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM ENTITLED THE CHILDHOOD & ADOLESCENCE SURVEILLANCE AND PREVENTION OF ADULT NON-COMMUNICABLE DISEASE (CASPIAN) STUDY IS IMPLEMENTED AT NATIONAL LEVEL IN IRAN. SIMILAR TO THE CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS OF OTHER DEVELOPING COUNTRIES, IRANIAN PEDIATRIC POPULATION IS EXPERIENCING LIFESTYLE AND ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGES MAKING THEM PRONE TO RISK FACTORS OF NON-COMMUNICABLE DISEASES. CONSIDERING THE TRACKING OF THE RELATED RISK BEHAVIORS AND RISK FACTORS FROM CHILDHOOD TO ADULT LIFE, SURVEILLANCE OF THESE FACTORS CAN PROVIDE USEFUL INFORMATION FOR LONG-TERM NATIONAL PLANNING. SOME INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS HAVE IMPLEMENTED SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS FOR TRACKING VARIOUS RISK BEHAVIORS AND RISK FACTORS. THE GLOBAL SCHOOL-BASED STUDENT HEALTH SURVEY (GSHS) HAS DEVELOPED AND SUPPORTED BY THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION (WHO) IN COOPERATION WITH UNITED NATIONS’ UNICEF, UNESCO, UNAIDS, AND CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION (CDC). THE YOUTH RISK BEHAVIOR SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM (YRBSS) IS MONITORING THOSE HEALTH-RISK BEHAVIORS CONTRIBUTING TO THE YOUNG AND ADULTS’ MORBIDITY AND MORTALITY. THEY INCLUDE BEHAVIORS RELATED TO UNINTENTIONAL INJURIES AND VIOLENCE, TOBACCO USE, ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUG USE, SEXUAL RISK BEHAVIORS, UNHEALTHY DIETARY BEHAVIORS, AND PHYSICAL INACTIVITY AS WELL AS OBESITY AND ASTHMA. TILL NOW, THE SURVEYS HAVE BEEN CONDUCTED EVERY TWO YEARS FOR FOUR TIMES, AND HAVE DOCUMENTED IMPORTANT TRENDS OF PREVENTABLE UNHEALTHY BEHAVIORS AND RISK FACTORS. THE FINDINGS OF THESE NATIONAL SURVEYS HAVE SERVED FOR ACTION-ORIENTED POLICY MAKING AND INTERVENTIONS FOR HEALTH PROMOTION OF CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS, AS WELL AS FOR PRIMORDIAL/PRIMARY PREVENTION OF CHRONIC DISEASES.
