Latest Updates

New Community Health Worker Reference Guide

CORE Group Executive Director Karen LeBan was a Senior Author on a new document: Developing and Strengthening Community Health Worker Programs at Scale: A Reference Guide and Case Studies for Program Managers and Policy Makers

This document is an in-depth review of issues and questions that should be considered when addressing key issues relevant for large-scale CHW programs. Rather than being an instructional manual, the Reference Guide is meant to provide a framework for those in leadership positions in-country as they consider how to develop, expand and strengthen their CHW program.

At the MCHIP Close-out event in June 2014, Karen made a presentation on this guide. Watch the video here, and view her slides here.
