CHW "Principles of Practice"


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 programmes is a priority. They aim to guide NGOs to work with existing health structures through strong, long-term partnerships in order to deliver consistently high standards of quality implementation, training and support, toward the creation of community health workforces that are sustainable, functional and effective and can be successfully implemented at scale.
