Percentage of schools without first-aid kits is the share of schools without first-aid kits


A high percentage of schools without first-aid kits reflects an inability to address the health concerns of all those in school, including students, teachers and administrative staff. It is important to disaggregate the data for this indicator, particularly across regions, urban compared to rural schools and public compared to private schools. This may reveal unequal enjoyment of quality education, which may be indicative of discrimination
