Abstract: The development of morally appropriate attitudes and behaviors related to health is often considered as one of the many responsibilities of health educators. Unfortunately, the health educator is often asked to perform this important function without proper training and without a clear idea of his or her responsibilities in this domain. The purpose of this article is to provide definitions of morality and moral education, discuss the prominent characteristics of moral education, and outline the central and subordinate aims of moral education from a health education perspective.
