Strengthening the Community Healthcare Worker (CHW) Program in South Africa

I-TECH supports the South African Government’s National Department of Health (NDoH) to strengthen its community health workers (CHWs) program so that it promotes linkage, adherence, and retention in care.

I-TECH South Africa strives to improve care and treatment, and patient outcomes by addressing knowledge and skills gaps that result in low performance related to HIV Care and Treatment indicators. As such, it will collaborate with the NDoH, District Support Partners (DSPs), and educational institutions to implement a CHW skills development program to train over 22, 000 CHWs, making strides toward achieving the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets.
