Reading is Good for Health involves doctors and nurses working in health centres and paediatric hospitals in reading counselling of families with children from six months to six years.
It has been launched with the sponsorship of the High Commissioner for Health and is recommended by the Portuguese Health Administration. It is developed by the National Reading Plan in partnership with medical associations such as the National Association of Family Doctors and Portuguese Society of Paediatricians.
The Project benefits from technical support from the USA project Reach Out and Read (ROR).
This project is run by National Reading Plan (Portugal).
