AGAPE is a Peer Learning Technique applied to the sexual and reproductive health rights of migrant women which aims to contribute and strengthen knowledge and understanding of their own sexual and reproductive rights, especially for those women in a vulnerable state, and to leverage processes in support of their autonomous and responsible exercise of those rights.

During the course, women were trained to help other migrant women recognise their sexual and reproductive health rights and how to access services that guaranteed them. The two principal resources used in the course were: a flip chart and a guide to training community peers in sexual and reproductive health rights in the context of migration.

This course was led by ReGHID co-Investigator Dr Jovana Alexandra Ocampo and held in September 2022 in the facilities of the Practice Centre of the Faculty of Medicine of the Universidad de los Andes, Colombia.
