Following decades of ebbing and flowing interest, in the last few years, there has been growing attention to the potential of various types of community health workers (CHWs) in reducing inequities in access to essential health services, particularly in under-served or excluded, vulnerable populations. The emerging WHO Global Strategy on HRH: Workforce 2030 encourages countries to adopt a diverse, sustainable skills mix, harnessing the potential of community-based and mid-level health workers in inter-professional primary care teams. WHO welcomes expressions of interest from individuals and organizations with a relevant capacity and background to serve as members of the Expert Review Group for the guidelines, whose task will be to review and provide feed-back on the early drafts of the document. More information on this will be posted on the WHO’s Community-based health workers (CHWs) webpage  in due course.
