How can we better support CHWs and see them as vital part of the health care system? #ResilientHealthFuture
CHWs are frontline public health staff who conduct outreach and build trust with vulnerable populations and have a particularly important role in stopping disease spread. Despite CHWs being labeled essential workers during the pandemic, CHWs were underused and underemployed during the pandemic.
How can we support them going forward and help strengthen our healthcare systems in the face of rising challenges? Share examples of well equipped community health initiatives and how providing CHWs with adequate resources has led to more resilient systems around you.
