Public Policy Arenas
|< Back||Next >|
When looking at these policy arenas, we need to recognize that everything is connected to everything else. For example, a sustainable funding mechanism, such as Medicaid reimbursement, may be impossible to secure without official policy governing the qualifications of CHWs, which is a facet of occupational definition. Community colleges, which may provide services in workforce development, will be unwilling to offer vocational courses for CHWs without evidence that jobs will be available for those who complete the courses—which in turn requires sustainable funding for those jobs.
