Community Health Extension Workers (CHEWs) are health professionals trained to provide basic health services, health education, and promote preventive measures within communities. CHEWs play a vital role in improving the health and well-being of communities, especially in rural or underserved areas. They are involved in tasks such as maternal and child health services, immunization, health education, family planning, and disease surveillance.
Community Health Extension Workers (CHEWs) are vital components of healthcare systems, particularly in underserved and rural areas. Trained as community-based healthcare providers, CHEWs focus on delivering essential health services, health education, and preventive measures directly to communities. Their responsibilities encompass a wide range of tasks, including maternal and child health services, immunizations, family planning, disease surveillance, and health promotion. By working closely with local populations, CHEWs bridge the gap between healthcare facilities and remote communities, ensuring that basic healthcare needs are met, diseases are prevented, and health awareness is raised.
