Archived Community Health Worker Resources
MHP Salud regularly updates resources to ensure they are accurate and comply with modern standards for reference materials, statistic accuracy, and modern methodology.

While in most cases, these materials are removed from our resource listings outright; specific resources are archived if they still contain pertinent and accurate information. All resources are free and licensed to be distributed for educational use.
