Article collection: Supporting and strengthening the role of close-to-community (CTC) providers for health system development

The series covers a range of topics on close to community providers for health systems development: 001

Close-to-community (CTC) providers are health workers who carry out promotional, preventive and/or curative health services and who are often the first point of contact at community level in countries in the global south. CTC providers usually have at least a minimum level of training in the context of the intervention that they carry out and include a broad variety of health workers, including community health workers (CHWs) and auxiliary health workers. National and international decision-makers are once again turning to CTC services in order to strengthen health systems in the context of the momentum generated by strategies to support universal access, delivery of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the post-MDG agenda.
