An article from the Journal of Community Practice. Discusses the idea that the way CHW are trained influences the roles they play, using the combined training method at the Community Capacitation Center in OR as an example. Maintains that efforts to integrate CHW into health and social service systems may be less effective if they fail to support the role of CHW as agents of social change.
