[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Symposium Presentation] The effect of alcohol on human body is different depending on consumer's gender. Women have 5 reasons to not abuse on alcohol consumption. WHO recommends, on women moderate use lower doses, less than 16 gr/l. Peer-Education is a widely used approach to health promotion and double empower youth engaged on that approach. Trained youth peer educators contribute to civil society by virtue of their citizenship and their long-term leadership. Peer education can be used as a strategy for evaluation, especially in regard to adequate health literacy assessment. Purpose: To determine how different pattern of alcohol consumption is between man and women participants at academic night's parties. Methods:  Analyzing data from the 850 peer-counselling to university students participating in 8 nights of Coimbra academic festivity in 2009: characteristics of alcohol consumption and related attitudes. Structured interview and assessment of blood alcohol level with AL-6000, during at least 30 minutes each person. Results:  There were differences between men and women on type of preferred beverage (p=.000), average of drunkenness (p=.000), average of standard drink units UBP (p=.000), average blood alcohol level (p=.000), driving under the influence of alcohol (p=.000), to be led by alcoholic persons (p=.0044) and frequency of sexual intercourse under the influence of alcohol (p=.000). There is no difference in perceived risk of HIV infection or other STIs. Conclusion: Results show efficiency of this assessment model to address youth in recreational settings and its health literacy needs. These results allow identifying needs of educational intervention on women, as they have weaknesses inherent in their womanhood. Also show that is priority to educate women for the physiological differences. Peer Education may be a strategy to induce moderation in alcohol consumption and harm reduction in these recreational events because promote consciousness.
