CHW Programmes in the WHO African Region (6)

HIFA Quotation: 

...CHWs in many countries go beyond volunteer jobs through nomination by the Community to aid primary health care service delivery. It is very clear now that CHWs are now more of professional people than ever thought and even conceptualized by the World bodies. They now have more greater roles and higher career pathway.
