What are resources and how do I download them?
We collect and post resources that you can use to research a CHW program, start your own program or simply to learn more about community health workers in the United States and across the globe. Resources include journal articles, research papers, white papers, training tools, podcasts and more
CHW Central Resources can be searched by title or author, or can be filtered by topics and resource types. Click the resource title for more details. To access the file, either click the resource URL to be directed to the original publication or click the filename to download the resource.
If you find a link that no longer works or a file that will not download please contact us.
How do I use the filters on the Resources page?
On the right side of the Resources page you will see an option to sort resources by topic and type. The number in parenthesis next to the topic or type indicates the number of resources that falls under that category. For example, Case studies (31) indicates that there are currently 31 case studies listed on the Resources page. Clicking on the link will bring you to a separate page that only lists those case studies. You can further filter your results by clicking on a topic to display all the case studies that fall under that particular topic. To go back simply click the (-) icon next to the topic or type and it will clear the filter.
How do I suggest a resource, event, or best practice?
If you are working with community health workers, are a CHW yourself, or are in some way connected to CHWs we want to hear from you! The best way to suggest a resource is to use the contact us page.
