Keywords Health Equity, HIV/AIDS

During this interactive webinar course, the first in a series and presented on July 27, 2017, participants learn why community health workers (CHWs) could be key to reducing barriers to care faced by underserved and hard-to-reach populations, specifically in HIV systems. The course defines the role of CHWs, how they are integrated into health care teams, and how they function as an integral part of the health care system. Experts share real-world illustrative examples of CHWs working in HIV care. Participants learn about building—and expanding—internal capacity for CHWs.
