Young Male Peer Education Project

Last updated:2012-07-24 08:54:38

Goal: to promote the adoption of safe sexual behaviour and increase the uptake of STI treatment services by young men in Vientiane Capital who engage in high risk sexual behaviour, including male-male sex.

Specific objectives:

The main approach of the project is peer education to ensure a comprehensive mode of delivery to the target group.

The project received an extension for one more year funded by PACT (previously funded by USAID) to be implemented in three phases. During the first phase a new group of 27 peer educators (all young men who have sex with men) were trained for outreach activites focused on promoting knowledge abot HIV and other STIs, safer sex options, and referral for diagnosis and treatment for STIs. The project will extend existing activities such as outreach work and peer discussions. Also, additional efforts will be made to reinforce the referral system.
