Objective: to elevate the level of information on the herpetic gingivostomatitis through the design and application of "Health for children" program.  Method: an investigation of quasi experimental intervention in the system and health services by means of a design pre and post test was performed. It was directed to family physicians of the polyclinic "José Martí" and the health area of the Odontology clinic "Mártires de Pino III" of Camagüey, from January to December of 2007. The investigation was organized in five stages. A survey was made with its respective assesment scale, which was applied at the beginning and at the end of the study. Results: the educational program "Health for children" was designed and it was applied to the family physicians. When being concluded an evaluation through the survey was carried out. Conclusions: the level of information of herpetic gingivostomatitis was evaluated of regular before the educational intervention, after having applied the program the entirety of doctors possessed a good level of information.
