AIVL and its members have been practicing peer education intuitively since their inception, which has, by and large, well-served both peer-based organisations and drug users in the community, particularly in relation to the prevention of blood-borne viruses and the reduction of drug-related harm. For many peer-based organisations and peer educators, it has been a matter of “doing what comes naturally,” rather than boxing themselves into corners with words and theories.
The AIVL Peer Education Framework is a starting point for understanding our approach to peer education. We hope it will inspire reflection and further deliberation that contributes to our understanding of this complex, dynamic, and
highly effective form of learning and change.
