Community health workers in Mozambique, locally known as Agentes Polivalentes Elementares (APEs), are an integral part of the national health system, intended to improve access to quality health care in remote areas of the country. APEs are conducting extensive health promotion and education activities​ as well as case management of malaria in patients of all ages, pneumonia and diarrhoea in children under five and referring pregnant women, newborns and children with danger signs to the nearest health facility.

inSCALE, a five year research and implementation program supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, is interested in evaluating innovative approaches to CHW motivation, supervision and performance by increasing the frequency and quality of supervision, status and standing of CHWs in the community, and their connectedness to ad integration in the health system.
