Peer Education is considered one of the tools available to reach young people with information and skills.
The Women's Centre of Jamaica Foundation (WCJF) intends to address sexual reproductive health issues in Jamaica by using 'peer influence' approach to train young people in sexual and reproductive health matters.
The WCFJ through the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) hosted two residential Peer Educator Workshops in July. The targeted parishes were Clarendon and Manchester.
Forty-six males, 17-25 years who are youth leaders or potential leaders from civic groups and community based organizations were trained as Peer Educators.
