We aim to achieve this by:
1. Advocating for the recognition of CHWs as a formal cadre of health workers
2. Providing technical assistance to governments seeking to enhance and scale-up nationally recognized CHW programs
3. Urging financing organizations to support CHWs and to motivate countries to increase mobilization of their own resources and to request support from donors until the government no longer need such external support
As advocates of UHC, we support an equity-driven approach to scale-up CHW systems to reduce health disparities and help build healthy communities. Such efforts are not only essential to economic growth, but also to improving education outcomes, promoting social justice, and to the recognition of health as a fundamental human right.
