Now and Future of the Health and Physical Education
The Health and Physical Education in the developing countries greatly vary from those of developed countries.

The WA identified several factors that have direct impact upon the safety, health and physical activity of the children.
The evolution of the Health and Physical Education
Schools were always considered as the great medium to develop the concern about health and fitness among the children (kis.in, 2016). Therefore, many games and activities were included in the school course to encourage the children to be health cautious.
