LINKAGES Abordagem melhorada de educação entre pares através das suas redes de contactos (EPOA) Guia de Implementação LINKAGES Abordagem melhorada de educação entre pares através das suas redes de contactos (EPOA) Guia de Implementação
Type of content Training, Program guidance

A melhoria da abordagem de alcance dos pares (EPOA) está sendo testada atualmente por parceiros da LINKAGES em vários países da Ásia, África e do Caribe Oriental. A experiência até agora mostra que não existe uma abordagem "one-size-fits-all" para o EPOA. É um modelo que requer adaptação ao contexto local, e porque é novo, pode ser necessário um período de adaptação, pois os programas aprendem o que funciona melhor para eles. Este guia descreve o EPOA e seus benefícios potenciais, os componentes essenciais do EPOA e as etapas envolvidas na sua implementação, incluindo desafios potenciais. Inclui uma lista de verificação para se preparar para implementar o EPOA (Seção 4), e os anexos incluem exemplos de ferramentas e formulários do programa.

LINKAGES Enhance Peer Outreach Approach Implementation Guide LINKAGES Enhanced Peer Outreach Approach Implementation Guide
Type of content Program guidance

The enhanced peer outreach approach (EPOA) is currently being piloted by LINKAGES partners in several countries in Asia, Africa, and the Eastern Caribbean. Experience so far shows that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to the EPOA. It is a model that requires adaptation to the local context, and because it is new, a period of adaptation may be needed as programs learn what works best for them. This guide, which is also available inFrench and Portuguese, describes the EPOA and its potential benefits, the essential components of the EPOA, and the steps involved in implementing it, including potential challenges. It includes a checklist for preparing to implement the EPOA (Section 4), and the annexes include examples of program tools and forms.

There is also a training curriculum that complements the guide by offering a detailed curriculum for training peer outreach workers to implement the EPOA. The guide consists of this document and a set of training tools, handouts, and PowerPoint presentations.
