Policy evidence assessment report : community health worker policy components
Corporate Authors:National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (U.S.). Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention.
Description:Policy Evidence Assessment Reports summarize the evidence bases for components of chronic disease policy. Evidencebased policy can be used to prevent, control, and improve the outcomes of chronic disease, but the strength of the evidence for many components of policy is unknown. The Policy Evidence Assessment Reports are intended to inform researchers, evaluators, and practitioners about the strengths and limitations of the evidence bases for individual components of chronic disease policy interventions. These reports can be used during consideration of policy options to improve chronic disease outcomes, as well as to understand how enacted state laws incorporate evidence-based policy.
A community health worker (CHW) is a frontline public health worker who is a member of the community served and improves the quality and cultural competence of service delivery.1 A CHW policy intervention, such as a state law, supports the role of the CHW.
