The Journal of Ambulatory Care Management has dedicated a number of special issues to literature about, for -- and often by -- Community Health Workers (CHW). The special issues provide an opportunity for members of the CHW community to reflect upon the work to strengthen policy and practice and for CHW and allies to become more connected as a community of practice.
The issues explore CHWs’ role in advocating for their profession and their communities, as well as contributions of CHWs to reforming the US health care system and increasing access to healthy food and nutrition. All Special CHW issues and related content are compiled in this special collection.
