Community Health Workers (CHWs) have a long, rich history of improving health outcomes, particularly within underserved communities. They have been especially involved in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic response by providing essential public health education and delivering health services in resource-constrained areas. Despite the power and promise of CHWs, the public still lacks understanding about their role and value in the healthcare system. This is directly related to the absence of long-term, sustainable funding needed to appropriately support and sustain the CHW workforce. This webinar will provide attendees with the opportunity to hear from CHWs and other stakeholders who will share their thoughts on the current financing landscape, including what works and where there may still be gaps in the public health workforce. The webinar will also include time for Q&A with attendees.
