The chronic shortage of health workers globally is a major obstacle when trying to provide crucial health care delivery in areas of the world where it is needed the most. A way to approach this issue has been to “task shift” health professional roles to providers such as lay health workers (LHW), a “lay person” that has been trained to provide health services but is not a conventional health professional. This review seeks to assess the effectiveness of LHWs and explore factors that can influence the success of LHW programs in maternal and child health programs.
