"'I'm a Health Worker' - Abduaraman Gidi" made by IntraHealth International.
The USAID-sponsored Community Health Worker (CHW) Regional Meeting was held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from June 19 to 21, 2012. Over 60 government and nongovernmental (NGO) representatives from Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Zambia and Mali, as well as participants from NGOs and international organizations attended the meeting. The meeting, designed by Initiatives Inc. under the USAID Health Care Improvement Project (HCI), was intended as a forum through which to demonstrate and discuss tools and strategies to strengthen the functionality, scale-up and sustainability of government and NGO-led CHW programs. At the end of the three-day workshop, country participants developed action plans to guide their post-workshop follow up. The full proceedings of the CHW Regional Meeting are available online; this report focuses on the progress each country made in addressing its action plan.
