Ensuring access to quality care during pregnancy

Developing and strengthening community health worker programs at scale

This reference guide is not a WHO publication, however the WHO recommendations on optimizing the roles of health workers in maternal and newborn health were used extensively in its development. This guide is an in-depth review of issues and questions that should be considered when implementing large-scale Community Health Worker (CHW) programmes. It is meant to provide a framework for those in leadership positions in-country as they consider how to develop, expand and strengthen their CHW programmes.
