Center for the Community Health Workforce

A Regional CenteCHW Training 3r for Advancing Community Health Worker Practice, Research and Policy

Leveraging growing opportunities for peer-based workforce strategies, IPHI launched the Center for the Community Health Workforce (CCHW) in 2013. The Center for the Community Health Workforce is a new, broad-based regional partnership across the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia that fosters collaboration to grow and support the community-based health workforce with a particular focus on CHWs.

The CCHW will:

  • Support the development of regional standards and scopes of practice for CHWs;
  • Further develop a teaching program for the training and continuing education of CHWs;
  • Support the development of CHW networks across DC, MD, and VA;
  • Provide consultation and technical assistance to organizations that request help in planning, operating, or evaluating CHW programs;
  • Support the effective integration of CHWs into clinical and community-based teams and the design of policies and programs that facilitate retention of CHWs;
  • Engage in research and innovation relating to CHW models;
  • Serve as a clearinghouse for regional, national, and international CHW best practices; and
  • Support policy development to finance and sustain CHW service models across the region.
