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

Author(s): 
Bakary Sidibe

This article draws on the importance of CHWs in post conflict countries.  Sidibe details personal experience in East Timor where he worked as a Peace Corps Volunteer, but emphasizes his new work in Liberia and the health improvements that have been made as a result of CHWs.  Liberia and surrounding nations post Ebola were left with a lack of health resources posing a challenge to its people.  With the support of the international community these countries are now establishing CHWs to help with preventative care in communities across the country.
