The authors note that decompositions of this final state may gene... Read More »

Reinstate community health workers to reach vulnerable populations

CHLWs have the potential to reach local and vulnerable populations but health programmes that include these workers often seem to fail and show high attrition rates. The authors propose that the roles and interests which support community health work should emerge directly from the way in which health is organized at community level. Acce... Read More »
