They’re able to provide services to people in rural and remote areas, improve equitable service delivery, and implement simple interventions (like vaccinations) that can have a huge impact on morbidity and mortality.

I’ve written about CHWs and the CHW Central resource on the MCHIP website, and today GOOD posted a fantastic infographic that really makes the case clear.
