CHWs (172) CHW Tools Feature Series: The C3 Tool

16 September, 2019

CHW Central’s latest feature is up. The CHW Coverage and Capacity (C3) Tool uses Excel to model options for CHW program design with respect to CHW time allocation, workload, and targeted population coverage of interventions, among other variables. The tool is designed to help health planners approach analysis from one of two sides: (1) to determine the approximate number of CHWs required to efficiently provide specified health interventions, or (2) to define, rationalize, and optimize the effective level of coverage for and mix of activities/interventions that a predetermined number of CHWs undertake for a given population.

Engage on HIFA to let us know how you might use this tool in your CHW program context.
