Community health Champions: Evidence review

Link

Summary

This evidence review looks at the evidence base for community health champions and similar roles. Community members (either as volunteers or paid community health workers) undertake health promotion activities within the neighbourhoods and communities where they live and/or work. “Altogether Better” is based on an empowerment model. At the heart of this model is the concept that community health champions can be equipped with the knowledge, confidence and skills to make a difference in their communities. The evidence indicates that using Health Champions has improved access and increased uptake to services.
