Train the Trainer Guide for Training PHE Community-Based Distributors and PHE Adult Peer Educators

This guide was developed for two types of training: 1) Training-of-trainers (TOT) events where facilitators learn how to train Population-Health-Environment (PHE) community-based distributors (CBDs) and PHE Adult Peer Educators (PEs) on community-based education and distribution of family planning (FP) methods within the context of an integrated PHE intervention, and 2) Training events where facilitators train PHE CBDs and PHE Adult PEs who work on integrated PHE activities.

The guide contains 15 modules. These cover the basic topics that PHECBDs and PHE Adult PEs need to know to discuss basic ecology, PHE linkages, and reproductive health/family planning with community members within a PHE context. The modules include the latest in international FP norms and guidance on sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). Some of the information on contraceptive methods and STIs was adopted from The Population Council’s “Balanced Counseling Strategy Plus: A Toolkit for Family Planning Providers Working in High HIV/STI Prevalence Settings.”
