Guidelines for practitioners of community-based worker systems

These guidelines aim to assist practitioners and implementing partners to run Community-based Worker (CBW) systems more effectively, to maximise impacts for clients of the service, and to empower communities, the CBWs themselves, and to assist governments to ensure that services are provided at scale to enhance livelihoods. The guidelines focus on how to run the CBW system rather than technicalities around HIV/AIDS or natural resources issues. The guidelines are generic and draw primarily from work in South Africa, Uganda, Kenya and Lesotho.
