This study investigates reasons for high rates of CHW attrition in Sylhet District in northeastern Bangladesh. The framework presented in this paper illustrates the decision-making process women go through when deciding to become, or continue as, a CHW. Factors such as job satisfaction, community valuation of CHW work, and fulfillment of pre-hire expectations all need to be addressed systematically by programs to reduce rates of CHW attrition.
