This study focuses on the peer education approaches and experiences in five youth projects funded by the IPPF Vision 2000 Fund in Burkina Faso, Senegal, Ghana and Indonesia. The specific objectives are to identify the main lessons learned and key criteria for developing a successful peer education approach in a similar context; and to establish a model which encompasses the various experiences and approaches for peer education, and outreach activities. This document is designed to be used as a guideline by youth programme managers in family planning associations and other people who want to plan and carry out peer education projects for youth, such as social workers, health educators, personnel of non-governmental organisations and youth associations, etc. The results and key lessons can be used to design a new project, or to integrate peer education into an existing youth project. The document describes the necessary steps to plan, design, implement and evaluate peer education programmes
