We work with our partners to reduce health disparities, achieve the Triple Aim (better health and better care at lower cost), and foster healthier communities.

In order to reach these goals, we serve as a convener, catalyst, expert and resource to advance and integrate community health worker strategies. CHW approaches are an integral part of the solution to the challenges facing our communities and our health care, public health, and social services systems.

We build awareness, promote education, partner to integrate and expand access to CHW models, share research, and take action for greater impact. We provide information, networking, consulting, and technical assistance services.
