This review was designed to find evidence of the effectiveness of CHWs in providing basic preventive and curative MNCH interventions, and to identify the factors that are crucial to their performance. The review looked at relevant English-language articles from 1998-2008 and systematically reviewed 14. The results showed that in 12/14 articles CHWs were effective in reducing neonatal/child deaths, increasing breastfeeding, reducing and treating malaria and reducing workload of health professionals.
