CHW SURVEY

Who are CHW?

Community Health Workers (CHWs) are frontline public health workers who are trusted members of and/or have an unusually close understanding of the community served. CHWs build individual and community capacity by increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support and advocacy.  CHWs address issues of health care access, quality, cost, and disparities.  

CHWs can work under many different job titles, including promotores de salud/promatora, community health representative, community advisor, outreach worker, peer educator, patient navigator, and other related titles. In January 2010, the role of Community Health Worker was officially recognized by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the Department of Labor as Standard Occupational Classification 21–1094.
