This new report reveals the use and effectiveness of health peer education for young people in European countries.  It states that peer education increases the knowledge and skills of those involved, revealing that the method is particularly useful for tackling sensitive issues such as sexual health, HIV prevention and domestic violence, and especially effective in promoting physical activity and healthy active lifestyles.

The report also details the wide range of factors which influence the success of peer education programmes including delivery style and strategies for recruiting successful peer educators.

The European Youth Health Champions project is funded by the Erasmus+ programme and, in addition to StreetGames and RSPH, the partners include Birmingham City Council (UK), International Sport and Culture Association, the Flemish Institute for Sports Management and Recreation Policy (Belgium), BG Be Active (Bulgaria) Aġenzija Żgħażagħ (Malta) and Mine Vaganti NGO (Italy).
