Prevention Education and Research Unit (PERU)

Established in 1995, PERU, Research Education Network, Western Sydney Local Health District, has been at the forefront of preventative health innovation and research in Western Sydney for over two decades.

Our objectives are to promote health and wellbeing for all, empower young people and to serve the community.

Our prevention programs are social capacity building in healthy eating and physical activity, asthma, smoking cessation and promoting healthy choices in adolescents in high schools, and universities. The programs continue to show results, with strong partnerships with a range of services and organisations.

Student Leadership and Advocacy

The Triple A and SALSA programs have been established for over 15 years. Our programs complement the work of teachers, partnering with each school to positively influence students to make an impact on the community.

Our Programs

SALSA

Students As LifeStyle Activists (SALSA) is a peer-led leadership program designed to motivate high school students to increase physical activity and improve diet.

Triple A

The Triple A program is a proven initiative to improve the health and wellbeing of students with asthma and significantly reduce the likelihood of smoking.

Making A Difference

Triple A was started over 20 years ago and SALSA is now over 15 years old! Today our programs are reaching students in schools from Sydney and rural NSW, with past trials in Northern Territory, Tasmania, Victoria, Vietnam, China, USA and Jordan.

Ongoing relationships with schools, health and education organisations are a highly valued part of our work.

Our programs empower high school students and create a positive school community centred around health, leadership and, goodwill.
