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.
