The questions and answers from the webinar Using community health workers to improve linkage and retention in HIV care are now available.
Presented on July 27, 2017
Community health workers (CHWs) are known by many names, and they perform a variety of tasks. During this interactive webinar course, participants learn why 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.
Our experts share real-world illustrative examples of CHWs working in HIV care. Participants learn about building—and expanding—internal capacity for CHWs.
