GIZ in cooperation with civil society organisations have embarked on a vigorous training programme for Employee Wellness/Health and Safety focal persons and peer educators in selected companies of the private sector in Zimbabwe.

Peer educators will be equipped with knowledge and skills to champion and strengthen ongoing efforts to not only create awareness about HIV, but correctly inform other employees about tuberculosis, malaria, and hypertension. These topics have been selected by companies, their employees, and involved civil society organisations as most relevant health issues during a baseline assessment.

The manual aims to guide trained peer educators on how to effectively share health related information with their peers. It describes the purpose of an employee wellness programme and the peer educator’s role in this programme, highlights certain characteristics of good peer education, contains training material and interactive methods for each training session, and provides standardised monitoring and evaluation tools to follow up on expected outputs and outcomes.
