Providing Support on Issues Affecting CHWs and the Hispanic and Latino Community During the Pandemic
For over 20 years, MHP Salud has collaborated with national health organizations and associations across the country to develop resources and tools that provide support for CHW programs at federally qualified health centers, healthcare organizations, and community-based organizations.
