Zambia's Community Health Assistants (CHAs)

This brief is an outline of Zambia’s community health assistant (CHA) program detailing the impact of a nationwide salaried cadre of CHWs.  The report includes how CHAs are recruited, trained, and deployed in rural areas of Zambia.  The impact of CHA programs was found to include: task shifting and uptake of services, evidence-based strategies to recruit high performance CHAs and increased the volume of health services in rural areas by expanding basic access to health services.

Task-shifting impact of introducing a pilot community health worker cadre into Zambia's public sector health workforce

In 2012, a new cadre of Community Health Assistants (CHAs) were deployed as part of Zambia’s National Community Health Strategy.  This study aims to evaluate the impact CHAs have on the volume and type of health services provided.  Results show that the addition of CHAs in rural areas increased health service provision shifting the burden of basic health services away from more highly trained health workers.  This allows policymakers to improve access to care with constrained budgets.
