This month, the One Million Community Health Workers (1mCHW) Campaign team is curating a
digital conversation to discuss their recent work. Join the conversation over at CHW Central to see
the latest post and discuss key elements to the success of collaborations and effective scale-up.
The theme of the conversation is how to best build relationships across various programs,
organizations, and governments to allow for effective CHW scale-up. Among other things,
coordination between various partners is a crucial component to developing effective CHW
programs – however, challenges remain in appropriately structuring these relationships.
We are posing the following questions to the CHW Central community:
1. How do we build relationships between already established small-scale programs and larger
governmental programs? What do you see as key elements to the success of such
2. Based on your experiences, what do you see as the best way to structure these relationships
between small and large-scale programs? (i.e. should they be partners, should smaller
organizations serve as a resource, should they be consolidated, etc.)
3. Besides relationship building, what do you see as a main challenge in effective CHW scale-up?
What are some strategies to successfully address these challenges?
