Peer Approach in Adolescent Reproductive Health Education: Some Lessons Learned.
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Principal Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.
This package is one of a series of repackaged products aimed at alerting UNESCO users to a wealth of highly valuable educational resources that exist in the field of adolescent reproductive and sexual health. This document focuses on what research says is the impact of peer education in promoting necessary changes among adolescents in attitudes and behavior with regard to reproductive and sexual health. There is an increasing effort in countries in the region and elsewhere to employ a peer approach in their adolescent programs and activities to facilitate delivery of the message and acceptance. From these initiatives, experiences in the use of the peer approach have grown which has in turn generated a number of materials that document key strategies and lessons learned. This book synthesizes these experiences and shares lessons learned as well as offering guidelines to enable policymakers and program implementers to learn from others and possibly adopt/adapt those strategies that will have the greatest potential to succeed in their own setting.
