Latino Communities Spur Growth of CHWs

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the community health worker (CHW) workforce is expected to increase by 25% in the next 8 years. This growth is being led by Latino communities that have already achieved great strides using the CHW model.

In support of CHW programs on the ground, an expanding body of research confirms that CHWs will be playing even bigger roles in Latino health in the years to come. The evidence gives us strong reasons to champion CHWs as a strategy for alleviating Latino health disparities.
