This article explores the growing movement for labor rights for South African community health workers (CHWs). It tracks the emergence of sporadic mobilizations for decent work (supported by local health activist organizations) and the formation of the National Union of Care Workers of South Africa (NUCWOSA) in 2016. The authors of this paper close by offering suggestions for future research in this developing space.
