These resources serve as a reliable source of the most up-to-date and accurate information, tips, and support for organizations working with CHWs. Our team of experts use data collected from our over 35 years of experience implementing CHW programs, and input from partners and professionals within the CHW industry to ensure our publications provide the best information. Building the capacity of other organizations to deliver Community Health Worker programs for their unique populations, and collaborating with partners from across the country, furthers the success of the Community Health Worker model as a sustainable, culturally-appropriate means to improve health outcomes.
Through the years we have developed various newsletters, published blogs, and shared research on current issues that affect organizations working with CHWs. In the past, we have covered topics such as mental health, diabetes control and prevention, and domestic violence. What’s unique about our resource development is that we consistently create new opportunities for organizations to access information on emerging health issues, as seen in the development of our COVID-19 Resource Directory.
Additionally, we are committed to providing resources that are driven by the needs of the organizations within the industry. Through an annual need’s assessment, we collect information from partners, health centers, and community-based organizations that tell us what resources are needed to support organizations that work with CHWs.
