Estimating Economic Value of CHW volunteer time

Community Health Workers (CHWs) represent a major driving force for delivering health services to remote communities and measuring the scale of this valuable input is a challenge particularly in those contexts where they fall outside the formal health system and their efforts are difficult to represent in monetary terms. World Vision is conducting cost-efficiency analysis (CEA) of its multi-country Child Health and Nutrition Impact Study (CHNIS) where volunteer CHWs play a key role in the delivering of Timed and targeted counseling intervention at household level. The CHNIS is a five-year research project (2012-2017) investigating the effects of WV’s core health programs on maternal, neonatal and child health in four countries: Cambodia, Guatemala, Kenya and Zambia.
