CHWs (158) Community Health Workers' symposium statement

HIFA Quotation: 

CHW's are unique in the provision of community based health care in that ideally, they, like the Greek god Janus, are two faced...but  in a positive, not a pejorative sense. CHW's should answer both to the community that they serve, and to the health professionals with whom they serve.
