Two CHWs going over some paperwork.
The following evidence came from CDC’s CHW Policy Brief [PDF-1M]:

  • Improved HTN control with teams including CHWs
  • Improved cancer screening knowledge and cervical and mammography screening outcomes
  • Improved appointment keeping, compliance, risk reduction, BP control, and related mortality
  • Better diabetes clinical measures when cared for by a CHW and nurse case-manager group compared to CHW or nurse alone
