Each one, teach one, that was one of the best results of our peer ed groups at every prison I was at. Women who began the sessions not knowing anything about the immune system or how their bodies work learned the basics and were then both capable of and excited about teaching others what they had learned. The core of our work is the process of empowerment that accompanies peer education on health issues.
