Resources and Reference Materials on Recruiting and Hiring
Community Health Workers are well situated to address unmet health needs in undeserved communities. Often sharing the same socioeconomic background, culture, and language of the communities they serve, CHWs are able to establish strong connections with individuals and families that others can’t. This gives them unmatched access to conduct outreach and provide education in hard to reach areas. These resources provide information and guidance on how to recruit and hire Community Health Workers for your programs. All resources are available for free and licensed to be distributed for educational use
As members of the communities they serve, Comunity Health Workers (also known as Promotores or Promotoras de Salud in Spanish-speaking communities) are in a unique position to build on strengths and to address unmet health needs in their communities. They can perform a wide variety of roles and be referred to by a number of titles but generally, their primary role is linking vulnerable populations to health care or social systems.
