CHWA Announces Release of Report on Community Health Workers


Community health workers (CHWs) and promotores expand California’s ability to provide models of primary care and needed health interventions for communities, but there is statewide work that needs to be done to coordinate and promote the profession says our new report – Taking Innovation to Scale: Community Health Workers, Promotores and the Triple Aim. 

Funded by Blue Shield of California Foundation and published by the California Health Workforce Alliance (CHWA) at Public Health Institute, the report provides an assessment of the current role of community health workers in California, and makes recommendations about how to better support and utilize this valuable resource to positively impact health outcomes in our communities.

CHWA would like to thank Blue Shield of California Foundation, our survey respondents and our partners – all of whom have made this valuable work possible.
