A new reference guide addresses the challenges and strengths of large-scale CHW programs

Over the next few months, CHW Central will be providing a series of features highlighting sections of a new Reference Guide: Developing and Strengthening Community Health Worker Programs at Scale.  Dr. Henry Perry and a team of writers with global experience and knowledge on CHW programming developed the guide to help decision-makers and program implementers strengthen existing large-scale programs and design and scale up new programs. The authors foresee the effective functioning of large-scale CHW programs as one of the most important opportunities for improving the health of impoverished populations in low-income countries.  Case studies from Asia, South America and Africa illustrate how some national CHW programs have made a difference in reducing maternal and child mortality and expanding coverage of family planning services.
