Community Health Workers: The Basics
What are the Roles of Community Health Workers?
This video shows how community health workers work with their communities and help community members connect to health care systems and other community resources.
The CHW Core Consensus Project (C3) has developed an analysis of CHW models. Lee Rosenthal and Carl Rush (2017) describe the work of CHWs to be a continuum. You can read their full analysis of this continuum on page 22 of the final C3 Project Report. Consistent assessment of CHW programs is important for workforce sustainability. It also provides organizations with critical insights to adjust programming logics so that CHWs are able to increase their impact in the community.
