In this paper we present a critical analysis of content related to health education and prevention addictive lines in the current textbooks of Tunisian life science and earth (LSE) using analytical frameworks developed by research teams from 19 countries (Project Biohead-Citizen). Our view is decidedly didactic, ie that our analyzes (and therefore our instruments) are focused on content and objectives for instruction and discipline to a specific topic within the discipline, the education to health. Our research questions are: What is the nature of the images for health education? What are the teaching styles used? What model of health education and prevention is preferred in these textbooks by addressing the human vital functions? The results obtained allowed to conclude that health education’s Tunisian textbooks (LSE) favor health biomedical conception. However the textbook analysis of the second letters and terminal show some signs of renewal that express a very early consideration of the Health Education as proposed by WHO. Research conducted under Biohead-Citizen project show that the “Health promotion” dimension is dominant in the curricula and textbooks in some countries (e.g Finland and Portugal). Such a development of curricula and textbooks is hoped for Tunisia.
