This week CHWCentral had the privilege of attending the 20th annual Unity Conference held in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. For our global audience, the Unity Conference is the US national CHW conference. Attended by more than 800 people, many of them CHWs from across the United States, the conference highlighted some of the major issues and advancements in US CHW programs, many of which will resonate with CHWCentral’s global audience.
A major event during this year’s Unity Conference was the launch of the newly formed National Association of Community Health Workers (NACHW). NACHW’s mission is “To unify the voices of community health workers and strengthen the profession’s capacity to promote healthy communities.”
