Dear HIFA colleagues,

I am delighted to share with you the Long Edit (36 pages) of our recent discussion on CHWs, supported by WHO.

Special thanks to our top contributors: Joseph Ana, Nigeria (14 messages), Sunanda Kolli Reddy, India (10), and Amelia Plant, USA/Egypt (8); to HIFA volunteer Sam Pakenham-Walsh for collation and synthesis; and to the members of the HIFA working group on CHWs.

A Short Edit (Selected Highlights) is now in preparation and will be available shortly.
