    Peer approach in adolescent reproductive health education: some lessons learned.

    UNESCO. Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education. Regional Clearing House on Population Education and Communication

    Bangkok, Thailand, UNESCO, Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education, 2003. ix, 69 p.

    This document focuses on what research says is the impact of peer education in promoting the necessary changes among adolescents in attitudes and behaviour 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 programmes and activities to facilitate delivery of the message and acceptance. From these initiatives, experiences in the use of peer approach have grown which has in turn generated a number of materials that document key strategies and lessons learned. This particular booklet synthesises these experiences and shares lessons learned, as well as offering guidelines to enable policy makers and programme implementers to learn from others and possibly to adopt/adapt those strategies that will have the great at potential to succeed in their own setting.
