What is a Community Health Worker?

“A  frontline public health worker who is a trusted member of and/or has an  unusually close understanding of the community served. This trusting  relationship enables the worker to serve as a liaison/link/intermediary  between health/social services and the community to facilitate access to  services and improve the quality and cultural competence of service  delivery. A community health worker also builds individual and community  capacity by increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a  range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal  counseling, social support and advocacy.” American Public Health Association Community Health Worker Section.
