AbstractA healthy lifestyle determines a person's long-term health more than any other behaviour. A lifetime of health education should begin during childhood and carry on throughout adolescence. In Hong Kong, however, health education for young people in secondary schools is limited to biology and physical education lesson. As a result of less attention paid to lifestyle and health consciousness, serious health problems can ensue. This study will investigate the experience of Hong Kong young people (N=150) with regard to health education, their actual lifestyles and attempt to identify the predictors of health behaviour. The data and results obtained will be crucial for designing an effective health promotion programme for young people in the future.
