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

Happy February to you all from the CHW Central Team!

This month we are pleased to release our CHW Reference Guide Summary, which provides an easy-to-read summary of the initial document, titled Developing and Strengthening Community Health Worker Programs at Scale: A Reference Guide and Case Studies for Program Managers and Policymakers (2014) . The original document was spearheaded by Dr. Henry Perry MD (John Hopkins University) in collaboration with 27 different health experts who shared their vast experience and knowledge about CHW programming around the world in the 468-page long document.

Originally published in May 2014 by USAID’s flagship Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP), it was created in response to the rapid increase in and expansion of CHW programs in low- and middle-income countries over the past decade. CHW Central has condensed the original guide into an easy to read 55-page summary document, which contains 16 chapter summaries by experts in the field, encapsulating the key-findings from the original CHW Reference Guide. 

Recommended for Health Systems researchers, Health Practitioners, Public and Community Health students, and those with a general interest in CHW programs.
