Community Health Worker Resources from the CDC
The CDC has collected created a web page that offers resources developed for or of interest to Community Health Workers. The resources were compiled from across the CDC and are organized by health topic. Each item includes a brief description, type of resource (e.g., toolkit, training material, fact sheet, or website), language, audience type, and related programs within the CDC.
A community health worker (CHW) is a frontline public health worker who is a trusted member or has a particularly good understanding of the community served. A CHW serves as a liaison between health and social services and the community to facilitate access to services and to improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery.
These resources should be helpful not only to CHWs but also to those who work with them. Each description identifies which of the following audiences are most likely to find the resources useful.
