Y-PEER Pilipinas (Philippines)
#QuaranTalks, Online Peed Education Sessions on SRHR in the Philippines
Y-PEER Pilipinas also known as Y-PEER Philippines, is a youth peer education network; working with young people on sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR). Y-PEER has networks located in many countries around the world and is also one of the largest by the membership.
Working predominantly with adolescent and young people on HIV prevention, Y-PEER aims to tackle some of these existing barriers through a series of live talks (webinars) and to provide condom distribution. Through the support of the YKP Emergency Relief Fund, Y-PEER will initiate an online peer education programme, aimed at educating adolescents and young people on sexual health during COVID-19. Conducted through a series of web-talks, and online peer education sessions, the programme will aid in the capacity building of youth leaders. Topics in the online sessions include information on gender rights, violence prevention, drug and alcohol safety, resilience, mental health and positive coping, help-seeking, COVID-19 prevention and peer support. Besides, Y-PEER will support an initiative to distribute over 3000 packets of condoms and lubricants to adolescents and young people in various states across the Philippines.
