The Community Health Worker Workforce - Getting to Sustainability
Session 3: CHW Sustainability Strategies: Advancing Practice and Policy

This session will offer a window into how the appropriate infrastructure, developed for and with CHWs, has led to the development of policy strategies for sustaining the CHW workforce. Presenters will share the approaches that they used to leverage the unique opportunities in their jurisdictions to overcome barriers and will provide practices that include examples of standardized training, certification programs, and reimbursement models that may be applicable and replicable to others.
