What do you take away from this session? In reflecting on what we have discussed, you might consider:

  • Some influences favor and some oppose credentialing CHWs
  • So far, regulation efforts have had limited impact
  • Published data on CHW effectiveness suggest broad benefits, but the quality of studies is mixed—and standards are needed

In the next session, we will address what some consider the biggest policy challange of all concerning CHWs: sustainable funding for employment.
