Resources and Reference Materials for Community Health Worker Programs

As the Community Health Worker profession grows, part of our mission is to ensure that Community Health Workers and the organizations that employ them across the world have access to high-quality educational resources. Our resource portfolio contains resources that are suitable for a wide range of purposes and are categorized by health topic or area of focus. Although MHP Salud’s own CHW programs focus on providing support for Latino communities, our resources can be applied to CHW programs or interventions targeting any population. The materials in our resource portfolio are kept up-to-date and are reviewed on an annual basis for accuracy. New materials are published on a regular basis, and all materials are available for download after a quick (and free) user registration.
