Global Consultation on Community Health Workers


The Global Health Workforce Alliance is organizing a global consultation on community health workers (CHW) scheduled to take place from 29-30 April in Montreux, Switzerland. The consultation builds on the findings of the recently conducted systematic review of CHW programmes, which will be published shortly. The objectives of the consultation are to:

  • identify CHW best practices and lessons learned on the basis of the CHW report, other relevant documents and experiences;
  • identify the challenges for implementation and how to bridge the gap between knowledge and programmatic action with particular emphasis on integrating CHWs within the national HRH strategic plans; and
  • identify strategies for dissemination of recommendations and lay the basis for an information-sharing network of stakeholders who are implementing CHW programmes
