CHWs (41) Selection of CHWs for pre-service training (6)

10 June, 2019

Dear Stephen Okeyo,

Thank you for sharing the Kenya experience with regards to WHO Guidelines on CHW selection criteria.

It would be interesting to hear from HIFA members the experience in other countries. Indeed, has anyone attempted a comparative study of the selection criteria for CHWs across different countries?

Also, I suspect there may be substantial variation within countries, especially perhaps between government-, NGO- and FBO-led (faith-based organisation) programmes?

Best wishes, Neil
