File Type: PDF | File Size: 6.45 MB

The USAID Health Care Improvement Project created the CHW AIM Toolkit to help Ministries, donors and NGOs assess and strengthen their CHW programs to improve their functionality. Built around a core of 15 components deemed essential for effective programs, CHW AIM includes a guided self-assessment and performance improvement process to help organizations identify program strengths and address gaps. Through discussion and review of current practices, the process assists understanding of best practices, builds consensus about and commitment to change, and provides guidance for improving functionality.

This toolkit was prepared by Initiatives Inc. and University Research Co., LLC (URC) for review by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
