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.
