PSI wants to promote the improvement of working conditions of Community Health Workers (CHWs) by reaching out to them and their trade unions. This pilot project will seek to motivate them for campaigns that will initiate social dialogue and create a broad workers’ front in the health sector for the elaboration of qualitative public health care for all citizens.
This project aims to ensure we can increase our knowledge of the situation in the subcontinent related to CHWs and can elaborate a strategy in order to move forward. We also aim to disseminate information in the region on the situation of CHWs.
CHWs are those who will benefit form this project. They are predominantly women workers, who work under poor working conditions, and often for free as ’volunteers’.
