Momentum to support community health workers
Several initiatives were recently planned around various aspects of Community Health Workers (CHWs), supported by the US Government, the government of Norway and an academic institution (KIT) in the Netherlands.
The Alliance worked with the conveners of these events to ensure coordination of approaches, to guarantee complementarity and consistency of messaging through which the positive potential of these policy dialogue opportunities can be maximized. The statements of some of the meeting are now available and can be consulted below:
