Promote Peer Support
If peer support is “good health care for all people,” then how do we get there?
Efforts to promote widespread adoption of peer support require top-down and bottom-up approaches; they also require within-country/region as well as global approaches to making the case for and spreading the work about peer support and its contributions to health, health care, and prevention. As more people and organizations understand the important role and benefits of peer support, together we can extend and build peer support into a routine part of health, health care, and prevention policies and systems.
The following sections offer information and resources to identify and strengthen your role in promoting peer support.
