"'I'm a Health Worker' - Abduaraman Gidi" made by IntraHealth International.

There is a growing movement among health care organizations to adopt the Community 
Health Worker (CHW) model into their system as a way to provide comprehensive care 
to patients and community members. At the same time there is uncertainty about how 
to implement the CHW model to achieve better patient outcomes, higher quality of care, 
and lower health care costs. With generous funding from the Lloyd A. Fry Foundation, 
the Sinai Urban Health Institute (SUHI) in Chicago, IL embarked on a two-year project 
(2011-2013) to create the Community Health Worker Best Practice Guidelines with the 
aim of addressing the gaps in knowledge about how to effectively implement the CHW 
model.
