CORE Group's Community Child Health Working Group, in collaboration with World Vision International, have created the CHW Principles of Practice: Guiding Principles for non-governmental organizations and their partners for coordinated national scale-up of community health worker programs . The document builds on the experience, knowledge and best practices of CORE Group’s Community Health Network including those organizations that have worked the CHW-AIM tool, and reflects comments received during the CORE Group Community Health Network’s 2013 spring meeting. The document also reflects principles being developed by the Global Health Workforce Alliance for countries.
The Principles of Practice outlined in this document are intended as a framework for advocacy, programming and partnership between implementing NGOs, government and donor agencies working with key CHW cadres in countries for which rapid and urgent scale-up of CHW program is a priority. They aim to guide NGOs to work with existing health structures through strong, long-term partnerships. They address CHW program issues such as competitive and duplicative working strategies, diverse incentives, parallel services, and diversity in supervision and reporting, among others.
We want to hear your feedback on the document. Please send your comments and suggestions to email@example.com.
