“This implementation support guidance presents principles for a national, georeferenced Community Health Worker Master List (CHWML) and a seven-step process for generating, sharing and maintaining such list in a registry. Each step includes a decision checklist and key considerations for planning and implementation. The guide also includes tools to evaluate the current state of a national CHWML, five candid country experiences, a summary of financial resource requirements, and links to tools and practical resources to aid in operationalization. The guidance was developed to support national governments, and their technical and financial partners.”
