A meta-synthesis of the existing literature, this article examines 33 publications to identify the factors that enable community health workers to bring about behavior change. It explicitly recognizes the difference between full-time trained and salaried community health workers and part-time community volunteers and proposes an approach to better coordinating the community health workforce to serve health, behavior change and empowerment needs.
