What is the Operations Room?
The Operations Room is our signature information system that tracks data about community health workers (CHWs) across sub-Saharan Africa. The Operations Room is designed to support the One Million Community Health Workers (1mCHW) Campaign’s mission to accelerate universal health coverage through CHW scale-up initiatives. As per the recommendation of the Frontline Health Workers Coalition Report (2014), Operations Room data is necessary and crucial for increasing the harmonization of CHW activities and promoting data-driven decision-making regarding CHW’s roles.
