Countries with health workforce shortages are rely on community health workers (CHWs) to extend a diverse set of services to the community. However, there may be a limit to the number of tasks a CHW can perform without causing a severe decline in quality or productivity. This study assessed the viability of an existing program in Iringa, Tanzania in which HIV-focused CHWs working as volunteers received additional training on maternal, newborn and child health promotion; thereby, establishing a new dual CHW model.
