    • Description:
      Updated Sept. 16, 2020

      Document purpose: This document provides suggestions for how Community Health Workers (CHWs) can support home-based care in low resource settings, including different actions CHWs can implement to support patients, their families, and their communities during COVID-19, and how to identify which people are eligible for home-based care. These suggestions can be adapted to follow national or local guidelines and to account for local context.

      Intended audience: These considerations are intended for program managers and other public health officials supporting COVID-19 efforts in Country Offices working with CDC global programs in low-resource settings. CHW programs may vary in structure, organization, and scope. CDC Country Offices may be working with governments, international organizations, non-governmental organizations, and community- or faith-based organizations may manage or implement CHW programs.
