Strengthening the Community Health Workers Workforce
Policy initiatives to support the development, use, and finance Community Health Worker (CHW) workforce.
The District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia stakeholders have worked to define the CHW scope of practice, core competencies, training requirements, make CHW certification recommendations, and finance preventive health services. IPHI has been highly involved in these efforts and is available to provide information or help organizations and localities get involved.
For additional information, see the spring 2018 community health worker certification.
